(11 May 2021) Following the UK government’s announcement that Britons will be able to travel for leisure to a select number of destinations from 17 May, British Airways has added new services to holiday destinations.
The 26 additional weekly frequencies will include destinations across Greece, the Canary Islands and Turkey to popular holiday hot spots including Corfu, Kos, Paphos, Rhodes, Lanzarote, Tenerife and Bodrum.
The newly established flights to Greece and the Canary Islands are available to book from today, 11 May for travel between 21 June and 5 September over the peak summer period.
Bodrum in Turkey will also be available to fly to from 18 July.
Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Director of Networks and Alliances 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.”
