"Adding an extra Boeing 777 to our Gatwick fleet has enabled us to enhance our fantastic flying schedule by increasing flights to our top leisure destinations, giving our customers even more choice.

"With so much to choose from holidaymakers are spoilt for choice; from our 13 flights a week to Orlando to our brilliant daily service to St Lucia, everyone will get a stunning start to their holidays with British Airways."

Gatwick head of airline relations, Matt Wood, added: "Passengers will now have an even greater choice of when to travel to the most popular leisure destinations across the US and Caribbean."
