ITA Airways leaves Heathrow to focus on London City and Gatwick

By Thursday, 15 February 2024 10:09

ITA Airways is abandoning London’s Heathrow airport to focus on London City and Gatwick. 

A220-100 flights from Rome Fiumicino

From 31 March the Italian airline will no longer fly to the UK’s main airport and will focus its operations, initially, on London City with seven daily frequencies, five from Milan Linate and two from Rome Fiumicino, operated with Airbus A220-100s. Subsequently, starting from June 2024, ITA Airways will also fly to Gatwick Airport, with daily frequencies also from Rome Fiumicino. 

Slots at London Heathrow do not come cheap

This decision is essentially due to the chronic lack of slots at Heathrow. The slots that have been used so far by the Italian airline were not in fact owned by it, and renting them certainly does not come cheap. Flying into London City Airport passengers will find that it is the ideal and logistically most convenient airport to reach the city centre, both by taxi and public transport, which makes it a favourite with business travellers.
