On Sunday, March 26, 2023, British Airways’ inaugural flight BA2157 departed London Gatwick (LGW) at 10:00 AM and touched down at Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA) at 5:00 PM local time.
The brand-new route will operate twice weekly via Antigua on Thursdays and Sundays. The new service operates on a Boeing 777-200 aircraft.
This new service will complement the already existing UK service to Aruba via TUI, which is seasonal, while British Airways’ service is offered year-round.
Guyana was also one of the latest destinations to join British Airways’ network of destinations. British Airways operates more routes to the Caribbean and Mexico than any other UK airline, now offering a total number of 17 destinations in the Caribbean region.
