Former Britain’s Got Talent stars Stavros Flatley entertained customers and British Airways staff at Gatwick Airport to celebrate the airline launching new flights from Gatwick to Larnaca in Cyprus this weekend.

The flights begin on Sunday June 30 and will operate three times a week.

Demi Demetriou of the father and son duo said: “We were dancing for joy when we heard that British Airways would be starting the flights.

“We go back to Cyprus for holidays and to visit friends and family every year so it’s great to have more flights to choose from.”

Peter Simpson, British Airways’ director at Gatwick, said: “We’re delighted to launch yet another great leisure route for our customers.

“As well as extra flights to the Mediterranean favourite Cyprus we have also started flying to Alicante, Barcelona, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Sri Lanka this year, offering holidaymakers an even greater choice of where to head to this summer.”
