Next Easter, from March 26 through April 16, 2023, British Airways (BA) will operate extra services between London Gatwick and Barbados . The additional 10 flights will operate Wednesday, Friday and Sunday to and from London Gatwick (IATA: LGW) and Bridgetown (BGI).

These three additional flights will have the capacity to bring an extra 3,336 UK visitors to Barbados over the Easter period and will increase capacity with British Airways from Gatwick to eight flights a week. From October 2022, BA operates five times a week from LGW to Bridgetown.

Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc (BTMI) is delighted to welcome the additional capacity from British Airways to Barbados. 

Commenting on the news, Chairman of the BTMI, Shelly Williams said: “British Airways is a long-standing partner, that continues to demonstrate commitment to Barbados. Our mutually beneficial relationship has grown from strength to strength, even in the face of challenges such as the pandemic, fluctuating pound and rising fuel costs. 

Increasing services between London Gatwick and Barbados at a time that other carriers are opting to redirect their services to shorter haul destinations, speaks volumes for destination Barbados and our relationship management.  Easter has always been special to us, so this new capacity is particularly welcomed during this key period for the UK travel trade and our tourism partners in Barbados.” 

This news comes on the back of the recent announcement on Thursday, September 22, that Barbados has lifted all covid restrictions(BTMI)
