British Airways
has said that it will operate 52 long haul routes alongside its short haul
network this month as the airline continues to adapt to changing restrictions due
to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The airline will
continue to operate to US gateways including New York JFK, Boston, Los Angeles,
Miami and San Francisco, with Newark added to the schedule. Flights to the
Caribbean continue to destinations including Barbados, Antigua and St Lucia,
and flights will operate to destinations across Africa, the Middle East and
Asia such as Dubai, Mumbai, Hong Kong and Singapore. Flights to Santiago, and
Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, are also set to return.

Sean Doyle, CEO of
British Airways, said: ‘We continue to connect Britain with a substantial
number of destinations across the globe and customers tell us they are
reassured by the safety measures we’ve put in place, including personal
protection packs, screens, sanitiser stations, adapted meal services and
customers and colleagues in masks.

‘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. Over the same period some 1.2
billion passengers have travelled. This figure amounts to one case for every 27
million travellers.

‘We believe the
best way to get people flying again is to introduce reliable and affordable
testing before flying. When this happens and demand returns, we stand ready to
reintroduce even more destinations to our network, and carry on connecting even
more families, friends and businesses.’

British Airways
will also continue to serve domestic destinations including Manchester,
Glasgow, Aberdeen and Newquay. In continental Europe, cities like Paris,
Munich, Geneva and Amsterdam, among others, will be connected to Heathrow by
frequent, direct flights. There are also regular flights to beach destinations
such as Lanzarote, Tenerife and Gran Canaria.

The operation of
any flight is subject to changes, international restrictions and government
approval, British Airways said, adding that the airline has a range of measures
to keep customers safe when they travel, both at the airport and on board.
