British Airways will fly from London Gatwick to Aruba and Georgetown, Guyana in summer 2023, the airline said in a press release Wednesday.
The announcement was also confirmed by Minister of Works, Juan Edghill. BA will fly to Queen Beatrix International Airport on the island of Aruba twice weekly on Thursday & Sunday from 26 March 2023. This operates as a “tag on” to existing flights from Gatwick to Antigua. A constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands Aruba is located 18 miles north of the Paraguaná Peninsula of Venezuela.
The airline will also fly to Georgetown, Guyana twice weekly on Monday & Thursday from 27 March 2023. The service to Cheddi Jagan International Airport also operates as a “tag on” on BA’s service from Gatwick to Saint Lucia.

The route switches from Gatwick to Heathrow on Sunday 30 October 2022. Services between Gatwick and Port of Spain will also operate non-stop rather than via Saint Lucia.
