Families to Reunite Between UK, USA and EU Thanks To BA

British Airways is adding thousands of extra seats on key routes to the UK from the USA and EU, following a huge increase in interest in travel to London since the UK Government announced that quarantine restrictions would be lifted for fully-vaccinated US and EU customers when travelling to the UK.

Within a couple of hours, British Airways saw bookings from the US surging by 95%, following the recent UK Government announcement mainly from cities such as New York and Los Angeles in the USA, and European cities such as Berlin, Geneva and Hamburg.

The additional flights will play a key part in kickstarting the British economy by welcoming much-needed tourism back to cities all over Britain.   

Starting from 16th August 2021;

  • Flights between New York-JFK and London Heathrow will increase to 21 services per week (up from 17 per week)
  • Los Angeles and Chicago will increase to 10 per week (up from 7 per week)

From 23rd August 2021:

  • Flights between Seattle and London Heathrow will increase to 7 services per week (up from 4 per week)
  • Los Angeles will further increase to 14 per week

BA also plans to continue to broaden its schedule between the USA and UK throughout September.

Customers from the US will be able to take advantage of the increased timetable, as well as services to the UK with American Airlines. 

Additional flights will also be added from European cities such as Berlin, Geneva, and Hamburg, and the schedules will be continually reviewed to ensure the number of seats available matches customer interest.
