The airline will operate 52 long-haul routes whilst continuing to adapt to safety measures

Heathrow-based British Airways says it will operate 52 long-haul flights in conjunction with its short-haul network this November.

Domestic destinations such as Manchester, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Newquay will remain consistent. European cities including Paris, Munich, Geneva and Amsterdam will be connected via Heathrow on frequent flights.

Flights to US bases will also continue, including New York/JFK, Boston/Logan, Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco. Newark has also been added to the schedule for late November.

Caribbean services are expected to continue with scheduled trips to Barbados, Antigua and St Lucia, as well as routes across Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

During these uncertain times, the flag carrier has considered that any flights are subject to change and international government approval.

Sean Doyle, CEO of British Airways, said: “The risk of contracting COVID-19 during a flight is incredibly low. IATA, the global aviation industry body, suggests that since the start of 2020 there have been as few as 44 cases of Covid-19 linked to flights.

“We believe the best way to get people flying again is to introduce reliable and affordable testing before flying,” he added.

There are currently an array of measures in place to keep customers safe whilst they travel.
