British Airways plans to offer nonstop service between London and the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Broward County, airport officials announced Thursday.

The new service begins in July. The airline will fly from Fort Lauderdale to Gatwick International Airport in London.

“This announcement has reiterated FLL’s status as an attractive, low-cost airport with a diverse portfolio of air service options. FLL is widely recognized as one of the fastest-growing “large hub” airports in the country,” said Mark Gale, the airport’s CEO/Director of Aviation. “British Airways decision to land at FLL illustrates the strength of this region and the incredible opportunities Broward County offers for tourism and business travelers.”
