Emirates has confirmed it is postponing the launch of its fourth daily service into London’s Gatwick airport.

The carrier had been due to start the additional frequency on October, which would have been the airline’s 10th daily service into London.

But a post on routesonline.com today stated that the flights had been removed from the carrier’s inventory.

Business Traveller contacted Emirates for confirmation, and received the following statement from a spokesperson:

“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.”
