“The British Airways flexible booking policy also gives our customers reassurance if their plans change,” he added.
Customers booking can do so with absolute confidence, thanks to British Airways’ flexible booking policy. Customers can also exchange their booking for a voucher or move their dates without incurring a change fee, if their plans change.

Safety is at the heart of British Airways’ business. The airline continues to implement a range of measures that it requires customers and colleagues to observe, which include:
*Observing government regulations around advice around travel
*Asking customers not to travel if they think they have any symptoms of Covid-19
*Wearing facemasks and bringing enough to replace them every four hours for longer flights
*Checking-in online, downloading a boarding pass to a mobile device where possible for self-scanning at security and the departure gate
*Observing social distancing and using hand sanitisers that are placed throughout airports
*Asking customers to ensure they have everything they need from their hand luggage before departure, and where possible, storing their carry-on bag under the seat in front of them
*Cabin crew wearing PPE and a new food service, which reduces the number of interactions required with customers
BA said its team cleans all key surfaces including seats, screens, seat buckles and tray tables after every flight and each aircraft is completely cleaned from nose to tail every day.
The air on all British Airways flights is fully recycled once every two to three minutes through Hepa filters, which remove microscopic bacteria and virus clusters with over 99.9 per cent efficiency, equivalent to hospital operating theatre standards, it stated.
Digital health travel passport, VeriFLY, is currently available on all of the airline’s inbound flights to the UK, as well as from the UK to the US and Canada.
It is designed to help those eligible to travel to navigate the changing entry requirements and facilitate a seamless journey by ensuring customers are ready to fly and have the appropriate documentation in place, before departing for the airport. The app is optional for customers and can be downloaded to a mobile device.
Customers are advised to check the entry requirements of their final destination. The UK is taking steps to help stop the spread of Covid-19. All persons (including UK nationals and residents) arriving into the country must provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken within three days of departure to the UK and complete online a Passenger Locator Form in advance.
