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

    It’s great that the Domestic flights are running, just difficult to do anything when you get to Scotland.

    Desperate stowaways have been trying to escape from lockdown on Scottish Islands by hiding in vehicles.

    • Sinia Sithole says:

      I’m scheduled to fly 22 july to Johannesburg as a visitor will that be still possible

      • Rob says:

        South Africa is currently saying that tourists will not be allowed until February 2021.

  • theflyingsikh says:

    Hello, Any possibility to publish which European destinations BA are planning to fly in July? Thank you.

  • Maggan says:

    No BA flights in July to Amsterdam and the Seychelles. Mine were cancelled this week.

  • Ant says:

    I’m confused…

    Flights from the UK are going to the USA, however UK citizens, at the moment, are not allowed into the country.
    a) Are these just ghost flights?
    b) What will happen to a UK citizen upon reaching the USA? Would BA fly them there on the basis they know UK people can’t enter and fly them back?

    • Rob says:

      They make a profit on cargo alone.

    • Rob says:

      Very unlikely. Virgin is assuming it can make money flying cargo on that route and any US passengers returning home are welcome to hop on. Can’t see UK citizens being allowed back into the US by July.

  • Marie Hoxtable says:

    I dont see any flights published for Kingston Jamaica…but have seen flights which can be booked from 20th June 2020.
    Are BA flying to Jamaica or not and if so from when.

    • Rob says:

      If shows them, there is currently an intention that the flight will go. However the situation is changing week by week. Given that Kingston is an outbound route (ie far more UK people fly there than Jamaicans fly here) I assume it will be cancelled if quarantine is not lifted.

    • Lisa Mundy says: currently has 4 dates available in July to fly from Gatwick in Kingston. The dates are July 20th, 24th, 27th & 31st. You can book them online.

  • Journeying John says:

    Given the plummet in BA’s services in recent years and their actions in the past 2months, why would anyone book BA? Better alternatives are available for the same / less money AND no competitior has acted as immorally wrt. workforce and witholding customers funds.
    IT meltdowns, data breaches, dirty cabins, intentional underprovisioning of catering, broken screens, densified cabins, reduced onboard amenities, reduced staffing meaning the customer does most checkin themselves and waits longer for any service request, hostile change / rebooking / refund policies, mean frequent flyer programme…

  • ACo says:

    Edinburgh to Florence in July cancelled. return flight in August not yet cancelled…

  • angela Pickard says:

    Myself and friends were hoping to travel to Mumbai n onto Goa in January 2021. We would like to book flights now but worried our visas wont be eligable.
    If India wont allow us in,in January would we get out flight cost reimbursed
