Gatwick services increased by British Airways to long-haul destinations including Orlando, Jamaica and St Lucia from summer 2014.
The rise in capacity will be made possible by the carrier’s decision to add another Boeing 777-200 to its Gatwick-based fleet next year.
As a result, BA will increase flights to Orlando from 10 times weekly to 13, while its St Lucia service will rise from six weekly to daily.
Punta Cana (Dominican Republic), Antigua and Kingston will all benefit from an additional flight per week, meaning they will be served three, six and four times weekly respectively.
Peter Simpson, BA’s director of Gatwick, said: “From next year our customers will be able to fly more often to many of our most popular destinations.
“Adding an extra Boeing 777 to our Gatwick fleet has enabled us to enhance our fantastic flying schedule by increasing flights to our top leisure destinations, giving our customers even more choice.”
