British Airways has announced it will add Vienna to its growing portfolio of city destinations from Gatwick, with the start of a new service from September 17, 2015

The airline will offer six flights a week to the Austrian capital on board its Airbus A320s.

The service will be British Airways’ 45th short-haul route from Gatwick and create a direct link to one of Europe’s most historic cities. A further seven new routes will also launch from Gatwick this summer including, Heraklion, Bodrum, Dalaman, Cagliari, Rhodes, Funchal and Sharm El Sheikh.

Colm Lacy, Head of Commercial Gatwick, said: “Vienna is a beautiful city, perfect for
a weekend escape or a longer break, and with great flight and holiday prices, customers will be able to make the most of their time there.”

The six times a week service will operate from Gatwick every day except Saturday from September 17, until the start of the winter schedule in October, when it will operate four times a week. British Airways also flies to Vienna from Heathrow.
