British Airways have confirmed that they will stop their daily flights between Gatwick and Manchester airports.

The carrier will instead focus on its Heathrow route, which it serves with up to 11 flights a day, when the axed flights end on March of 2013.

"British Airways retains a strong presence in Manchester where it currently employs over 400 staff at the airport, at the airline’s call centre and BA CityFlyer head office in Didsbury," a statement from BA said.

"In addition to the Heathrow flights, there are two flights a day to Billund and two to Gothenberg that fly in British Airways colours from Manchester, operated by franchise partner SunAir."
