Where is British Airways flying in July?
In the last few days British Airways has been ramping up to welcome Joe Public back on board. It is now displaying a ‘welcome back’ message on its homepage, together with the measures it is taking to make flying as safe as possible.
What has been missing is what its future route network will look like. It is slowly making adjustments, including the cancellation of its Leeds Bradford flights, and pushing back the launch of Newquay. ‘Meaningful service’ was meant to return in July but has now been deferred.
Whilst Virgin Atlantic has announced its summer 2021 flight plan, British Airways has been more cautious, making incremental changes. Nonetheless, British Airways is increasing its flights. There are now 29 destinations, up from 17 in June.
We have also included the domestic schedule for July. We do not have the full list of European flights.
The list below was published by Routes Online on Thursday afternoon for long-haul and Friday afternoon for domestics. We have checked it and it appears to be accurate.
This list is clearly hugely speculative – although the flights ARE bookable on ba.com.
