Gatwick has been boosted by news of an extra Boeing 777 being added to its long-haul fleet.

Peter Simpson, Managing Director, Gatwick, said: “This is extremely positive news for Gatwick and gives us the opportunity to continue building on what we’ve already achieved. The additional aircraft allows us to increase frequencies to some of our most popular destinations.”

From summer 2014, customers flying from Gatwick will benefit from an extra three flights a week to Orlando, and additional weekly flights to Kingston, St Lucia, and Antigua onto Punta Cana.
