British Airways has just announced a new service from Gatwick Airport to Las Palmas (Gran Canaria), which will commence from March 2015. The flights will use both A319 and A320 aircraft.

The new Canary Islands destinations also include Fuerteventura, which will fly to the island from 13 December 2014.

The new service to Gran Canaria reinstates a service operated by GB Airways for BA, which ended a few years ago.

Since that time there has been continuous demand from hoteliers and tourists for a “high quality” airline to operate a service to Gran Canaria to serve the increasing number of guests staying in the newly opened and renovated five star hotels on the island.

Customers alleged to have been drugged in Club Divinity Bar

Six people have been arrested in Playa del Ingles for stealing and drugging customers.

The National Police have arrested the owner and five employees of a nightclub called ‘Club Divinity’, which is located in Playa del Inglés, in the south of Gran Canaria, for allegedly committing card fraud after putting a narcotic substance in customers’ drinks.

Detainees who are suspected of robbery, fraud and belonging to a criminal gang, enticed their victims into the bar, and once inside offered them drinks.  A massage service was also offered by one of the bar staff.

In an unguarded moment, a narcotic substance was poured into the glass of unsuspecting customers that caused loss of control of their actions. Those arrested seized the opportunity to take their credit cards and commit credit card fraud.

The victims awoke later, disoriented and with no memory of what had happened, but realised that a criminal offence had taken place after checking their bank accounts.

After one of the victims reported the crime, police ordered a raid on the premises that led to the arrest of six people.

It was later reported that the narcotics were benzodiazepines.
