TUI Gatwick Flight

Hi

We’re booked to go to Enfidha airport on 18th May. Originally the flight was scheduled at 8am, now it’s 5.45am. The problem is I can’t find this flight on the MyGatwick site (for offers, info etc). Also, I didn’t think flights started this early from Gatwick? I thought 6am was the first flight out. Does anyone have any idea about what’s going on here?

Thanks

It is usually stipulated in flight documents that flight times are/can be "subject to change"

Could be any number of reasons.

Happened to me a couple of times.

Just a rescheduling of "slot times" on one of them.

The other was due to a strike somewhere,can't truly recall what it was.

Air traffic control in France or something like that.

However, i was informed of this by phone and email from my agent

(Tui/Thomson as it happened)

Contact your Tui agent,or whoever you bought the holiday from for re-assurance/confirmation.

Slainte

PS

Dont forget to set your alarm clock ;)

Its worth saying that Tui (UK) and Thomas Cook have just resumed charter flights to Enfidha-Hammamet airport

So there may be "teething problems" as a result of that.

Thanks for your reply.

To be honest I don’t mind how early it is really. Always prefer morning flights! Just wanted to be able to book parking, lounges etc but think I’d better hold off for a while.

FYI ..my flight from Gatwick in April is 0640 so perhaps it isn't a fixed departure time

Yes I’m wondering if it hasn’t actually been allocated a flight time yet. Went from 0800 to 0545 since we booked, but still doesn’t seem to exist on Gatwick website. Only needed to know to book car parking etc, but won’t be able to do that until I’m sure of times.

lilaclabrador,

Most Car parks work in 24 hour slot's,

Book your car park from 0200 hr's, if you do arrive before that time they will still let you in providing it's a well know one and not a cheap park and ride,

We always book from 3am for a 6am flight and never had an issue arriving early,
