New British Airways route to Milan Bergamo
Gatwick launches new gateway in to Milan and the Italian Lakes
Customers will soon be able to reach the metropolis of Milan from Gatwick with a yearround British Airways route to Milan Bergamo. The six-per-week service launches on September 1, 2019 with bookings available on BA.com from today.
Bergamo Airport is conveniently nestled between some of Italy’s most picturesque lakes and Milan. The airport is 45km from the fashion capital known for its sophistication and creativity which is perfect for a weekend city break. For those seeking a relaxed sunshine escape, Bergamo is the closest gateway to Lake Como and driving distance from Lake Garda, as well as the Franciacorta Wine Region. Bergamo also borders the Alps, providing access to a number of ski resorts during winter.
Seats are available to book on ba.com from today with flights operating from September 1, every day of the week apart from Saturday. Fares start from £25 one-way in Euro Traveller and £99 in Club Europe and customers can choose to cut the cost of flights by using Avios part payment. They can pick from a range of savings by destination and cabin while still collecting Avios and Tier Points on their bookings.
Adam Carson, British Airways’ Managing Director of Gatwick, said: “Milan Bergamo adds another exciting destination to our Gatwick network and is perfectly located for a city break, a summer visit to the lakes or even a skiing holiday in the Alps.
From Gatwick we fly to over 70 destinations as our network continues to expand we’re adding new routes designed to appeal to both leisure and business customers.”
The airline is also increasing the number of flights to winter sun hotspot Cancun which will move to a five-perweek service during the winter season. The new route comes as British Airways is investing £6.5 billion to improve its customer experience over the next five years, including new aircraft, new cabins, new catering, new lounges, WiFi, and new routes.
