London Gatwick flying to almost 90% of pre-pandemic destinations this October

JetBlue is adding a second daily service to New York, which is one of over 50 weekly flights to the US currently on offer from Gatwick.

This October half-term, London Gatwick Airport will fly to almost 90% of the destinations it flew to at the same period in 2019. It will serve 172 destinations during the forthcoming holiday period, compared to 197 in the same period in 2019 (87%).

Top destinations for half-term getaways include Dublin, Barcelona and Malaga, while Dubai, New York and Orlando top the long-haul charts.

At the end of half-term, Gatwick will be welcoming new airline Bamboo Airways, with a new route to Hanoi, Vietnam. JetBlue is also adding a second daily service to New York, which is one of over 50 weekly flights to the US currently on offer from Gatwick.

“We are really excited to see the number of destinations we fly to almost returning to pre-Covid levels for the October half-term,” said Jonathan Pollard, Chief Commercial Officer, London Gatwick Airport. “The summer was incredibly busy, and we took steps to provide more certainty for passengers, including recruiting more than 400 new security staff, so we are well resourced for half-term and beyond. It’s great to see our departure lounges busy again with people eager to jet off and enjoy our fantastic range of destinations, across Europe and further afield.”
