The flights will begin on 4 May 2016 and will operate three times weekly in the summer and twice a week in the winter. The new route will be the only direct service between London and Peru and will be operated by a three-class B777 plane.

The summer service will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. On Wednesdays the outbound flight will depart Gatwick at 1:50pm and land in Lima at 8:25pm, with the return flight leaving Lima at 9:55pm and landing in London at 4:15pm the next day. 

On Fridays and Sundays, the flight will leave Gatwick at 11:55am and land in Lima at 6:30pm. The return flight will leave Lima at 8:00pm and land in London at 2:20pm the next day. 

From 30 October 2016 the route will switch to its winter schedule and will operate twice-weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Lynne Embleton, British Airways' managing director at Gatwick, said: "It is great to be the only airline to offer direct services between London and Peru. Lima is a fantastic gateway to some of the most dramatic places to visit in South America and will also provide a new link for British business seeking to invest in Peru’s growing market."
