Dutch carrier transavia.com is moving its London-Rotterdam service from Luton to Gatwick from November 2.
The twice-daily weekday flights (once daily at weekends) will depart at 0755 and 2050 from Gatwick, returning from Rotterdam at 0720 and 2015.
The move will see Transavia returning to the airport it first served back in 1986, when it offered flights between Amsterdam and Gatwick. The carrier is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Air France KLM group.
