GB Airways flights go on sale on easyjet.com

GB Airways flights to Sharm El Sheikh, the Canary Islands, Corfu, the Greek Islands and Turkey are now available online with easyJet, which hopes to complete its purchase of the carrier this month.

EasyJet announced it was buying GB Airways, which operates as a franchise carrier for British Airways, in October. The airline continues to fly under BA colours, but BA will cease selling the flights on March 30.

GB Airways operates to 39 destinations from Gatwick, Heathrow and Manchester, including 16 new to easyJet.

Pending regulatory approval for the deal, the low-cost carrier will scrap the base at Heathrow and integrate the rest of GB Airways’ operation into its existing business by next winter.

Passengers who booked with BA and do not wish to fly with EasyJet will be offered a refund.
