British Airways is to continue providing flights to Gibraltar. The Government has welcomed the news saying the service will provide a lifeline to Gibraltar.
After discussions with Government the airline will be operating a service from London Heathrow to Gibraltar four times a week as from Thursday. Services will also continue in May, albeit with some possible changes to the schedule. Continuation into June and beyond will be assessed nearer the time.
The Chief Minister says he's delighted that British Airways will continue operating to Gibraltar providing a lifeline to our community and those around Gibraltar, not only for those people that need to travel for essential purposes but to ensure the carriage of persons and goods which may be vital to the current crisis as well as mail, cargo, courier services and other items that are crucial at this time. This, he says, is a great result for Gibraltar at this challenging time.
