Throughout August, British Airways is resuming flying to more destinations, albeit with continued low frequencies while the impact of Covid-19 remains felt across the globe.

In Europe, flights will resume to the holiday destinations of Bari, Bastia, Bodrum, Bordeaux, Catania, Figari, Frankfurt, Genoa, Kefalonia, Lyon, Luxembourg, Malta, Paphos and Pula, while further afield Antigua, Islamabad and Nairobi join the long-haul line-up.

Flights currently start from as little as £31 each way to Europe. Customers whose flights were affected over recent months and who claimed a voucher can use it towards the flights. If you have a simple booking with one person and no extras you should soon receive an e voucher to use on line.

There is also the option to pay a deposit for a BA Holidays trip and change the dates and destinations for a flight, or receive a voucher if they prefer not to travel. British Airways’ insurance, which is provided by Allianz Assistance also covers for epidemics and pandemics. Check for full details.  

Alex Cruz, British Airways’ chairman and CEO, said: “We’re gradually returning to more of our network and will be flying to some great holiday destinations over the summer with seats from as little as £31 each way.

“We know people want to be able to book with confidence, so we’ve introduced a range of flexible booking options to set their minds at rest, such as being able to change a booking free of charge or cancel and receive a voucher for travel at a later date.”

Ice is back!

Club Europe meal

One of the gripes about BA’s Covid-19 service has been cutbacks on board, but they are gradually getting better. Feedback on the Club Europe meals are that whilst it is simple, it is tasty and reasonably substantial. The meals consist of a starter, sandwich, and chocolate mousse.

Luckily for all the G&T drinkers, I can confirm that ice is back on board for Club Europe! Sadly there are still plastic glasses. The champagne is Nicholas Feuillatte and served in quarter bottles.


British Airways Club World to Jamaica from £1269 return per person


BA’s latest route is Montego Bay in Jamaica. Jamaica is currently a travel corridor and has no FCO warning against travel. If you fancy going, there is a good deal with BA which starts from £1269 if you book direct. There is not a huge amount of availability so you will have to be flexible on dates. 

The fare is available from November until March 2021 on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

You can book direct with British Airways here or find the cheapest online travel agent price with Skyscanner.
