In addition to these competitive prices and deposits from £60pp, every booking is backed up by our flexible booking policy in case our customers’ plans change before they travel.” 

British Airways has introduced a range of safety measures and partnerships to make the travel experience simple and enjoyable during and after the pandemic.

British Airways also has partnerships with a range of testing providers, cleaning mobile travel health app VeriFly and cleaning brand Dettol. BA also allows customers travelling to selected destinations to upload their negative Covid-19 test results and other travel declaration forms directly into their booking on the airline’s website ba.com, in advance of travel.
