British Airways is suspending all its flights to and from London’s Gatwick airport amid the coronavirus pandemic.
BRITAIN’S premier flag carrier said it will continue to carry out essential functions such as maintenance, towing and cleaning in order to be ready to start up again effectively.
The move follows easyJet’s suspension of flights after the government advised against all but essential travel.
British Airways added in a statement:
“Due to the considerable restrictions and challenging market environment, like many other airlines, we will temporarily suspend our flying schedule at Gatwick. We are contacting affected customers to discuss their options.”
