The airline will continue to operate long haul service to U.S. destinations including New York-JFK, Boston, Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco and will add Newark in late November. Caribbean service will continue with flights to Barbados, Antigua and St, Lucia.
Today (October 29, 2020), British Airways announced their November 2020 schedule with service to 52 long haul destinations to complement their short haul offering. The carrier will continue to operate flights to U.S. destinations including New York-JFK, Boston, Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco and will add flights to New York-Newark in late November. British Airways will also continue service to popular Caribbean destinations such as Barbados, Antigua and St. Lucia as well as flights across Africa, the Middle East and Asia with service to Dubai, Mumbai, Hong Kong and Singapore. Fights to Santiago and Riyadh will also resume in November 2020. In Thursday’s announcement, British Airways’ CEO, Sean Doyle, 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, sanitizer 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."
In addition to their long haul offer, British Airways will continue to serve domestic destinations including Manchester, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Newquay as well as continental European cities such as Paris, Munich, Geneva, and Amsterdam via London-Heathrow with frequent direct flights. Holidaymakers will also enjoy regular flights to popular sunny beach destinations including Lanzarote, Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
