GB Airways routes move to easyJet.com

A total of 32 routes operated by GB Airways for summer 2008 are now available for sale at www.easyJet.com.


These include flights to great sunshine destinations such as Sharm El Sheikh, the Canary Islands, Corfu, the Greek Islands and Turkey.

In October 2007, easyJet announced its intention to buy Gatwick-based GB airways, which operates as a British Airways franchise.

The deal is expected to complete in January 2008. However, BA has now terminated all sales for flights from 30th March 2008 onwards. In order to continue to provide competition and choice for customers, easyJet has entered into a code-share agreement and can offer the GB Airways routes through easyJet.com.

In total easyJet will now offer a choice of 66 routes from Gatwick and a further six from Manchester. The GB Airways Heathrow operation is expected to terminate at the end of March.

It is intended that GB Airways will continue to operate all routes under the British Airways brand until 29 March. After this, subject to regulatory approval, the GB flights will operate under the easyJet brand and all customers who have booked to travel with GB Airways next summer will be given the choice of flying with easyJet at the same times or else receive a refund. By winter 2008, GB Airways will be fully integrated into the easyJet business model subject to regulatory clearance.
