British Airways announced this morning that ALL flights to Italy have been cancelled.
This will continue until at least 4th April, which is the length of the current country-wide quarantine period.
Weirdly, 90 minutes after making this annoucement, it was withdrawn and replaced with an announcement that ‘some flights are affected’. However, a quick look at – for example – flights to Rome for this Saturday shows:
You can see the current situation on the BA Travel Trade site here although at the time of writing (2.30pm Tuesday) it is still saying ‘some’ flights are affected.
Rebooking guidelines have yet to be updated. However, the existing British Airways policy only covered flights up to 4th April anyway. As your flight is cancelled you are entitled to a full refund. BA may remain willing to rebook you to Zurich or Geneva instead for no extra cost.
There is still no British Airways policy on awarding Avios or tier points for cancelled services, so you will not receive anything.
