The route will be served three days a week year-round and four days a week during the peak summer season. Fares will be available from £189 each way. 
Several popular hotel chains have opened their doors in Florida in recent years including the world's largest Legoland Hotel and the Ritz-Carlton's tenth Florida property.

More on Florida:


Fort Lauderdale is one of the largest cities in Florida and just 28 miles north of popular beach destination Miami. 
British Airways’ head of commercial for Gatwick, Colm Lacy, said: "British Airways will now serve four Florida gateways, offering more seats from London to the sunshine state than any other carrier. It’s a city that boasts beautiful beaches, Venice-like waterways, an international yachting scene and world-class restaurants, and is also within easy reach of Miami, so customers can visit both destinations as part of a trip to the sunshine state."
