It was partly out of date before it went live, as the Italian Government published a law on Saturday night to place a quarter of the country under quarantine.
As of Sunday evening, British Airways has cancelled for Monday:
all flights to Venice
10/11 flights to Milan
the one flight to Bergamo
This is the new BA guidance for anyone with tickets to Italy. I ran this in a separate article yesterday but wanted to repeat it here for the benefit of our email readers.
That said, if all flights are now cancelled, the guidance doesn’t make much difference!
Here are the rules:
Rules apply to anyone travelling to Milan, Venice, Turin, Bergamo, Bologna, Verona
If you are booked for travel until 4th April, you can rebook for free for dates up to 31st May
You can also request a diversion to Zurich or Geneva
Here is the new bit added during Sunday:
Anyone with tickets to Milan, Venice or Bergamo for travel by 4th April can now request a full refund
