British Airways, a UK-based airline company, has announced a new route from London Gatwick Airport, in the UK, to Las Vegas, USA.
The new, three times weekly service commences from October 29, 2012, and will be operated by a three-class Boeing 777 aircraft, which will feature fully flat beds for Club World cabin passengers.
The new route will add more alternates for travelling between London and Las Vegas, by supplementing an already existing service of 10 weekly flights between Heathrow Airport and Las Vegas Airport.
Colm Lacy, the airline head of commercial at Gatwick Airport, said, ‘Las Vegas has proved to be an incredibly popular year-round destination from Heathrow so we are delighted to now be able to offer the route from Gatwick as well. This is the kind of destination our leisure customers at Gatwick are looking for and it will complement our existing USA and long haul leisure network.’
The new route is open for advance bookings at the company website, ba.com. The airline is also offering exclusive holiday packages to its passengers flying on the new route, which also may be booked via the airline’s website.
The company is offering a three-night stay at a hotel in Las Vegas, commencing from GBP826 per person, inclusive of airfare. The holiday offers are currently available at the company website. Amongst the Las Vegas hotels included in the vacation offer are the three-star Riviera Hotel and Casino, and five-star hotels including The Venetian Resort Hotel, the Aria Resort and Casino, and The Wynn Resort Las Vegas.
