December 21, 2018 | 1 Comment

Following the recent closure of Gatwick Airport’s runway, British Airways flight 2233 from London departed as scheduled today [Dec 21] and is due to arrive in Bermuda shortly, with the airline saying “all customers are advised to please check the status of their flight”.

A spokesperson said, “British Airways knows how important it is to bring people together at this time of year, so has been working with Gatwick Airport to get as many customers as possible to their destinations.

“Last night a special aircraft from Heathrow arrived to take passengers from Bermuda booked on BA 2232. It left Bermuda at 11.19 p.m. and arrived at Gatwick at 9.55 a.m. this morning shortly after the airport had reopened.

“BA has brought in extra staff to help look after customers at Gatwick today and continue to offer refreshments and updates to those delayed throughout the day.

“Some flights are now operating to and from London Gatwick today. The scheduled flight to Bermuda, BA 2233, left London as scheduled this afternoon at 2.20pm and is expected in Bermuda around 6pm this evening.

“Continued disruption from the closure of the airport on Thursday is expected and all customers are advised to please check the status of their flight on ba.com before leaving home.”

This morning a Gatwick Airport spokesperson said, “Gatwick’s runway is currently available having reopened at 06:00. Aircraft are taking off and landing this morning, but passengers can expect continued delays and cancellations as a result of the disruption yesterday. Gatwick continues to strongly advise passengers to check the status of their flight with their airline before travelling to the airport.

“Overnight we have been able to work with partners, including Government agencies and the Military to put measures in place which have provided the confidence we needed to re-open the runway and ensure the safety of passengers, which remains our priority.

“We continue to provide welfare and information to all disrupted passengers who are at the airport and have had teams in throughout the night. Our priority today is to get our operation back on track so that people can be where they need to be for Christmas, and we will update as more information becomes available throughout the day.”
