New Flights from the UK for 2023

Route Predictions for 2023

I think with the dollar rate being strong against the weak British pound will mean demand on inbound traffic to the UK, but not so much the other way! So perhaps a shift in capacity to Middle Eastern, African and more Asian routes popping up at some point in 2023.

Rumours of a Virgin Atlantic London Heathrow to Soul route to connect and interline them to joining the Skyteam alliance. I would also predict a route to compliment Kenya Airlines, perhaps a return to Nairobi? With rumours of another return to Dubai, Virgin Atlantic are quite known for dropping routes and then re introducing them if the market is right. They have dropped and returned to Chicago, Mumbai, Cape Town and even Nassau several times. However I would be surprised to see Virgin wanting to go head on with Emirates in this saturated market, so who knows!

Delta seem to be utilising at least one (so far) of Virgins slots at Gatwick on a daily JFK route to compete with British Airways, Jet Blue and Norse Atlantic Airways. Perhaps they will also take Jet Blue on with London Gatwick to Boston and further babysit Virgin's Gatwick slots?

Also predictions of Air Asia X returning to London Gatwick, perhaps Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur?

New Flights from the UK for 2023

I would also predict Norse Atlantic Airways re introducing some of the pre Covid (under Norwegian branding) transatlantic routes, perhaps this time around growing a little bit more cautiously than the predecessor Norwegian. I think a London Gatwick to LA route is on its way very soon.

For me I think the Luton to Amman route is the most exciting, whilst being on a Wizzair flight for 5 plus hours with 240 passengers squeezed in doesn't excite me! I know I will give the route a try and report back as Jordan has been on my bucket list the last couple of years!

So lots of great new routes for 2023, as and when new routes are added I will update the list of New Flights from the UK for 2023.
