London.– New flights by British Airways to the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean destinations will mean an additional 2,000 seats to the region.
With increased frequency to St. Kitts, Grenada, Barbados and Bermuda scheduled for next summer and new flights from Gatwick to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and Montego Bay in Jamaica will offer an extra 2,000 seats a week to the Caribbean from Gatwick.
BA will operate a total 55 flights a week from London to the Caribbean, with 11 destinations served from Gatwick and three from Heathrow.
British Airways, which began flying into St. Kitts’ Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport in January, will begin a second scheduled flight in March 2010.
The airline claims to now provide more seats to the Caribbean from the United Kingdom than any other carrier. All the long haul flights are operated with Boeing 777 aircraft.
