British Airways announces new services

Fly to Male and Sharm el Sheikh

June 1, 2009

Sharm el Sheikh

British Airways is to launch new thrice-weekly direct services from London Gatwick Airport to the Maldives and Egypt this October.

The new services will serve the Maldivian capital of Male and the popular Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt.

Richard Tams, British Airways' head of UK & Ireland sales, said: "These new routes will be great assets to the BA network and a real winner with customers. They are both perfect holiday destinations, known for their great beaches and fantastic diving. We're particularly pleased to be serving a completely new destination, the Maldives, and returning to Sharm el Sheikh. We expect both routes to perform well."

The new flights come into operation on October 25, 2009, but can be booked through www.ba.com.

Fares for flights to Male begin at £629 return, including taxes, fees and charges; fares for flights to Sharm el Sheikh start from £339 return including taxes, fees and charges.

If you're planning a holiday flying from London Gatwick Airport, remember to book great value airport parking and airport hotels with Holiday Extras.
