BA Euroflyer, the Gatwick-based subsidiary of British Airways, has added the Canary Island of Fuerteventura to its route map.

Set to launch on 2 November 2023, Fuerteventura will join Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria as the fourth Canary Island served by the short-haul airline.

A320 and A321 operations

Flights will operate twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays during the winter season on a mix of A320 and A321 aircraft. A third flight will be introduced on Wednesdays from 28 February 2024.

Tom Stoddart, BA Euroflyer’s CEO, said: “Adding Fuerteventura means we now fly to the four largest Canary Islands, which are great options for families, couples and friends alike.”

“Fuerteventura enjoys warm weather year-round, so it is a great option for those looking for winter sunshine without travelling further afield.”

Flights also include a Club Europe (business class) option, including pre-flight lounge access, more personal space, a full meal with drinks from the bar, and additional baggage allowance.


The Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are an archipelago of volcanic origin located in the Atlantic Ocean, about 100 kilometers (62 miles) off the coast of Morocco.

They are an autonomous community of Spain, with two capitals: Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The islands have a subtropical climate with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters.

Fuerteventura is the second easternmost of the Canary Islands and the second largest of the islands. The island is also home to the Jandia National Park, a protected area of dunes and cliffs.

Known for its beautiful beaches, rugged coastline, and vast natural landscapes, it is a popular year-round destination for water sport enthusiasts, with conditions lending themselves to activities including surfing, sailing, and windsurfing.

All in all, the Canary Islands offer a variety of activities for visitors, including swimming, sunbathing, surfing, hiking, golfing, and whale watching. The islands also have a vibrant culture, with a mix of Spanish, African, and Caribbean influences.

Fuerteventura is the seventh new service to be added to BA Euroflyer’s route network this year. The airline recently announced new summer flights to Montpellier, Corfu, Mykonos and Salzburg in addition to new winter services to Sharm El Sheikh and Innsbruck.
