Customers will soon be able to reach Milan from Gatwick with a year-round British Airways route to Milan Bergamo. The six-per-week service launches on 1 September 2019.
Bergamo Airport is conveniently nestled between some of Italy’s most picturesque lakes and Milan. The airport is 45km from the fashion capital. And for customers wishing to extend their business trip and to enjoy an extended sunshine escape, Bergamo is the closest gateway to Lake Como and driving distance from Lake Garda, as well as the Franciacorta Wine Region. Bergamo also borders the Alps, providing access to a number of ski resorts during winter.
Adam Carson, British Airways’ Managing Director of Gatwick, said:
Milan Bergamo adds another exciting destination to our Gatwick network and is perfectly located for a city break, a summer visit to the lakes or even a skiing holiday in the Alps.
From Gatwick we fly to over 70 destinations as our network continues to expand we’re adding new routes designed to appeal to both leisure and business customers.
Paul Baker, Sales Director of GTM, said:
Flying from Gatwick enables BA’s Milan-bound passengers additional choice and convenience. And, as Milan Bergamo is perfectly located for the sunshine of Lake Como and Lake Garda, it’s a great way to turn a purely business trip into a “bleisure” trip – something more people are asking us to arrange for them.
