    British Airways to launch a new low-cost short-haul subsidiary based in London Gatwick

    -operates from March 2021
    -initially to operate 17 aircraft
    -This new carrier will operate flights to European mainly leisure destinations under the British Airways brand.
    -British Airways has today registered BA EuroFlyer as the name of its new short-haul operation from London Gatwick Airport.The identity was lodged with Companies House in the UK although the operation is expected to retain regular British Airways branding in the mould of BA CityFlyer.

    Question: Will it only operate from Gatwick? Or will it take the advantage to operate from other BA airports?

    “British Airways sets up BA EuroFlyer for Gatwick ops”, (ch-aviation 15-11-21

    https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news/109708-british-airways-sets-up-ba-euroflyer-for-gatwick-ops

    The most surprising point noted in the article is that the airline will 75% (or more) owned by BA. So who is going to be a minority investor in the airline? or would want to be for that matter?

    In another article published in SIMPLE FLYING 15-11-21 under the title “Virgin Atlantic Expected To Return To London Gatwick”,……..

    Virgin Atlantic Expected To Return To London Gatwick

    ………..there is a sub-article under the headline, “British Airways needs to decide what it wants to do with its Gatwick slots”, speculating that if BA did not use its Gatwick slots it would hand them over to fellow IAG airline, Vueling. That leads me to consider if the 25% of BA-Euroflyer not in the hands of BA were to be passed over to Vueling. (not so mad as it sounds.)
