British Airways Switching Bermuda Flights to Heathrow

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - September 30, 2020

British Airways is switching its London-Bermuda flights from London Gatwick Airport to London Heathrow, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The new London Heathrow-Bermuda service will launch on March 28, 2021, according to a joint statement from British Airways and Bermuda’s Ministry of Transport. 

The flights will operate a range of frequencies from four times weekly to daily depending on the season. 

“This is a signature achievement which will provide a foundation to extend Bermuda’s tourism reach into Europe,” said Bermuda Premier David Burt. “The entire team who worked on this deserves our thanks as we set the stage for a new opportunity for tourism growth. British Airways has been a longstanding and valued partner and through this relationship we have partnered in an innovative change that will be welcomed by all travelers to and from Bermuda.”

The flights, which will be operated on a Boeing 777-200 aircraft, will run out of the new airport terminal scheduled to open at Heathrow in December. 

“We are enthusiastic about this London airport shift and have already begun talks with British Airways and local hotel partners to create special consumer offers to launch the Heathrow service next year,” said Bermuda Tourism Authority Interim CEO Glenn Jones. “While the city hasn’t changed, we treat this development like an entirely new route because we believe the whole European travel landscape changes now in a positive way.”
