BA grounds all Gatwick flights

British Airways has axed all flights to and from Gatwick Airport, because of coronavirus.

BA said it will contact affected customers.

It is still operating out of Heathrow, but with a reduced schedule.

The airline said: "Due to the considerable restrictions and challenging market environment, like many other airlines, we will temporarily suspend our flying schedule at Gatwick."

Owner IAG recently announced three-quarters of flights will be cut over the next two months also said it was 'taking actions to reduce operating expenses and improve cash flow'.

IAG has extended BA's Revolving Credit Facility for a year from June 23 2020 to June 23 2021, allowing it to borrow an extra $1.38 billion if needed during that time frame.
