Gatwick to open ten new routes this summer

Gatwick Airport will open ten new routes this summer, with connections in destinations including Brazil, Croatia, Italy, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Spain and the United States.

Some already established routes will increase in frequency in the months ahead, including Algeria and Alicante, Bilbao and Jerez in Spain.

The London airport is expecting more than 17 million passengers to depart from Gatwick this summer.

Gatwick’s head of airline relations Stephen King said the new routes demonstrated ongoing demand for departures from Gatwick. “It shows, even though it’s one of the busiest in Europe, airlines can still acquire slots and grow at our airport,” he said. “Rio de Janeiro [operated by Norwegian] has just joined Gatwick’s roster of long-haul connections, while our airlines are opening up new must-see destinations to explore, particularly in Europe.”

The new routes for summer 2019 are:

  • Asturias, Spain: three flights a week
  • Chisinau, Moldova: two flights a week
  • Cluj Napoca, Romania: seven flights a week
  • Gdansk, Poland: seven flights a week
  • Lametia Terme, Italy: one flight a week
  • Miami, US: seven nights a week
  • Rijeka, Croatia: one flight a week
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: four flights a week
  • San Francisco, US: five flights a week
  • Zadar, Croatia: three flights a week
