Where is British Airways currently flying to in the UK and Europe?

British Airways has been tweaking its short haul network now that there is a little more clarity about which countries do not need a 14-day quarantine when you return to the UK.

Routes Online has just published this week’s schedule.  The following routes will form the core of BA’s short haul flying program going forward.  Expect to see more destinations and frequencies added in the coming weeks.

    As I’m shielding I’m holding out for a cancellation of either an outbound to Athens on 16 July or a return from Zakynthos in the 26 July so I don’t have to take a voucher.

    I’ve seen the 5 daily flights Athens flights consolidate down to the one remaining flight which we are booked onto. Can’t imagine that won’t run so everything is resting on the 1 weekly Zakynthos flight being on a Saturday and my Sunday return being the cancelled on. Fingers crossed (for me!) although I’m sure others fancy some time in the sun!

    What other lounges are open at Heathrow – Plaza Premium??

    • Rhys says:

      Not yet – haven’t heard anything about Plaza Premium re-opening

  • Mark says:

    Mykonos and Thira (Santorini) are actually 4x weekly from mid-month. Averages out to twice a week over the course of the month, but in practice is either 0x or 4x for each destination.

  • Joe says:

    London City to Florence starting on the 10th. Some good prices to be had. I got €39 one way.
