Emirates has postponed its fourth daily service to Gatwick as part of a “routine operational review”.
The extra service was announced in March and was due to start next month. It would have complemented its six daily services to Heathrow and taken the airline’s total weekly flights to London to 70.
Aspokesperson for Emirates confirmed the postponement toBBT’s sister title Business Traveller:
“Emirates can confirm that we are delaying the launch of our fourth daily service to London Gatwick. This decision was made as part of our routine operational review, to ensure that our capacity is deployed to best serve customer demand across our global network.
“We remain committed to London and will continue to serve our customers on this route with a total of 63 weekly flights from Heathrow and Gatwick.”
Emirates announced this week it’s introducing a ‘Guest Traveller’ function to its corporate loyalty programme allowing buyers to book non-company travellers such as consultants and still earn Business Rewards Points.
The move is part of the airline’s revamped loyalty programme, which it claims will allow for “easier redemptions and upgrades” including last minute bookings.
