(Reuters) – British Airways will reverse its decision not to cancel short-haul flights departing from Gatwick airport. The Telegraph https:// reported Sunday.

The Telegraph reported that the executives of Balpa, a trade union representing pilots and other workers in the hopes that they would support Gatwick’s rapid change will accept a new deal for their pay.

British Airways (owned by London-listed IAG, LON:) announced that it will cease short-haul flights in London starting Sept. 23. This was due to pilots rejecting its proposal to create a low-cost airline.

Balpa requested that we resume talks last week, although we were actively exploring alternative uses for our slots. British Airways spokeswoman told Telegraph: “These talks were constructive. They addressed key concerns. And they have achieved the efficiencies needed.”

British Airways has not yet responded to our request for comment.
