British Airways is launching a new service to Oakland, San Francisco Bay from March 28, 2017.
It will be the airline’s first route from Gatwick to California, and its fifth service from London to the ‘Golden State’.
Oakland offers close connections to world-famous landmarks including Napa Valley, Carmel and Yosemite national park. The airport will also provide easy access to other parts of the Bay area, in particular San Francisco which is just a 30 minute ride by train or a 34 minute drive by car.
The route will be served by a 777-200ER aircraft operating four-days a week.
Colm Lacy, British Airways’ Head of commercial at Gatwick, said:
“We’re very excited to open up California to our customers in the Gatwick area and position British Airways as the number one European carrier to the Golden State. Boasting 260 days of sunshine, award-winning restaurants, some of the world’s best wine, a buzzing tech industry, great sports teams and world-renowned tourist attractions – there’s something for everyone.
“We are confident this route will be a big hit with British tourists”.
