BA ramps up July schedules

British Airways has unveiled the resumption of flying to more destinations across its network, including a small number of long-haul routes.

Services will resume across the Americas including flights to Bermuda, Dallas, Miami, Seattle and Toronto, although at lower frequencies.

Last month BA reinstated San Francisco and other US cities, including Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York (JFK) and Washington with a very reduced schedule.

Alongside Hong Kong and Singapore, restarted in June, BA will also resume flights to Haneda in Japan this month.

It will also restart limited schedules to Barbados and Kingston in the Caribbean.

Across the UK and Europe, the airline will return to more short haul destinations by the end of July, including Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo, Morocco, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey.

Domestic flights will resume between London and Belfast, Inverness, Jersey, Manchester, Newcastle and Newquay and the airline will move to double daily services to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

BA has introduced a range of Covid measures including social distancing and hand sanitisers, mandatory face masks and asking passengers to store their hand luggage under the seat in front of them.

It claims the air on all BA flights is equivalent to hospital operating theatre standards thanks to HEPA filters, which remove microscopic bacteria and virus clusters with over 99.9% efficiency.

Chairman and CEO Alex Cruz said: "Following months of lockdown and stress, we know people will want to travel to be reunited with friends and family and to take a well-deserved break.

"We have put in place measures - to UK Government and aviation regulator standards - to ensure we're doing all we can to protect the wellbeing of our customers and colleagues and we'll be asking them to play their part in that too."
