British Airways will recommence direct passenger flights between London and Hong Kong after the lifting of a ban.
Following the Hong Kong government’s lifting of its suspension on passenger services from the UK, the first passenger flight since December 2020 will depart from London Heathrow to Hong Kong on May 9, 2021.
“We at British Airways can’t wait to welcome our customers onboard our flights from London Heathrow to Hong Kong again, and are delighted to be able to reunite families and friends with their loved ones after such a long time apart,” says Noella Ferns, British Airways’ Head of Sales, Asia Pacific. “The safety of our customers and colleagues has always been at the heart of everything we do. We have also introduced a range of precautionary measures to provide stress- and hassle-free travel.”
British Airways has recently partnered with Dettol to offer a range of products to keep its customers and colleagues safe in the air and on the ground. The airline is cleaning 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. Like with other airlines, 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% efficiency, equivalent to hospital operating theatre standards.
Both one-way and return tickets between London Heathrow and Hong Kong are now available to book on ba.com, and the British Airways’ Book With Confidence commitment means those planning trips have the option to change their booking date and destination or even cancel it completely.
