Despite what you might think, British Airways is still operating some domestic flights despite coronavirus.
Not many …. but some. AirlineRoute reports that there will be 34 return flights next week, compared to almost 500 per week in early March.
If you do need to fly, here are the options for the week of 12th April. The time quoted is the most common one but may vary:
Aberdeen – three flights per week (Mon, Thu, Fri, 08.50 from Heathrow)
Belfast – seven flights per week (07.10 from Heathrow)
Edinburgh – six flights per week (not Tue, times vary)
Glasgow – four flights per week (Sun, Mon, Thu, Sat, 10.00 from Heathrow)
Isle of Man – seven flights per week (operated by Loganair, 18.40 from Heathrow)
Manchester – seven flights per week (10.15 from Heathrow)
There is nothing from Inverness, Leeds Bradford, Jersey, Newcastle etc.
All flights depart from Heathrow Terminal 5 as British Airways has moved all its operations from Terminal 3, Gatwick and London City.
In normal times it would be worth trying the Isle of Man service just to experience Heathrow via a tiny Loganair ATR42 turbo prop aircraft ….
