  • British Airways has added a new French, seasonal service to its London Gatwick (LGW) operations. On 28 May, despite the well-publicised operational problems the airline had suffered the day before, the oneworld carrier launched service to Limoges (LIG) in France. The 595-kilometre service will operate four times weekly until 17 September. While there is no direct competition on the route, Ryanair offers seasonal service from London Stansted (10 times weekly) while Flybe offers six weekly flights from Southampton which is only 85 kilometres from Gatwick. In total this summer British Airways will serve 55 destinations non-stop from Gatwick with just over 500 weekly departures. This includes two other destinations in France, Bordeaux and Nice.
