British Airways is to offer flights to the Canary island of Fuerteventura for the first time in 10 years from December 13. The new service will operate twice a week, year round from Gatwick, with hand baggage-only fares from £69 one way. Flights will operate on Wednesday and Saturday.
The biggest sporting and tourism event of Fuerteventura enters its final stretch.
