On Tuesday (May 11, 2021), British Airways announced the addition of over 93,000 seats to their summer 2021 schedule, including service to sunny holiday hotspots including 10 in Greece, two destinations in the Canary Islands and one in Turkey. Starting today, introductory one way fares are available starting at only £49. For example, customers departing London-Heathrow can enjoy one-way fares to Lanzarote from £49, Rhodes from £79 or Corfu and Chania from £99. The capacity increase follows the announcement that Britons are likely to be able to get a well-deserved summer holiday after all.


In Tuesday’s announcement, British Airways’ Director of Networks and Alliances, Neil Chernoff, said,


“It’s clear Britons are hoping that their favourite destinations will be open by the time summer comes. We want to provide them with access to book seats to the places they love to help them get away, and trust that if they can’t travel, we will be there for them with incredible flexibility to make changes to their bookings.”
