China Airlines returning to LGW

More good news for LGW: Looks like CI will be returning to LGW at the beginning of the S22 timetables, as confirmed by their booking engine. Flight numbers same as pre-Covid with similar flight times, reverting to the South Terminal as before. Will be good to see them back at LGW again. Are they currently the sole A359 operator into LGW?

There was always planned to be a pause. Flights resume in March.

The Iberia subsidary Iberia Express will operate between April and Ocober 2022 on behalf of the sister company from London Gatwick. Under a wet lease agreement, the Spanish carrier will operate some routes from the Uk's second largest airport.

The corresponding contract has already been signed within the group. In Gatwick, British Airways is opening a new subsidiary, BA Euroflyer. This should operate more cost-effectively than the mainline. Apparently there is a lack of staff, because they get help from the Spanish sister company Iberia Express at the start.

The group confirmed the use, but no further details are given as to how many machines will fly from Gatwick on behalf of British Airways. The Spanish union USO, on the other hand, states that there will be four aircraft.

Wow FRatSTN,
I never remember Ryanair doing that many routes from LGW, even when Aer Lingus had the base their or after ..

In relation to Vueling, I flew ALC LGW pre pandemic, they had a daily evening flight. That must be discontinued. At the time in the route they were competing with BA, easyJet and Ryanair and to some extent Tui..

With today's announcement that the slot rules at UK airports have been tightened to 70/30 use it or lose it, I believe the recent news regarding Vueling expansion at Gatwick
and the chartering of up to 4 Iberia Express aircraft for BA Euroflyer is in part a response by IAG's need to use more of its slots at Gatwick during Summer 2022.
Will be interesting to see if there are any more route expansions at the airport by IAG in the coming weeks.

Most of the information people request on here is readily available online. It is so easy now.
I can remember a time when the only way to get such information was to write or call the companies concerned or actually
visit the airports to see what was going on! In some ways more interesting.
Today want answers immediately and seem even less prepared to look out for information and answers themselves..

Why look elsewhere when you can ask on here? I don’t see the issue.

The issue is the lack of effort or ability of people to do things for themselves. Nothing wrong at all with asking on here after making some effort yourself.

It can be incredibly hard to get timetable information from an airline's website. They mostly only grudgingly reveal flight data if you ask for a specific date. What we folk want is "Days 1 3 5 from May 3rd till the end of summer" or something.

How do you know someone hasn't made any effort?
By the way, what is the relevance of Islamabad with regard to LGW-MAN flights?

A third (maybe more) of the passengers on an evening MAN-LGW flight are connecting on to Pakistan
