Following the COVID-19 disruption and as we return to flying, this page will be updated with key information and links you can refer to in relation to your bookings and future booking plans.


Policy for trade group bookings - effective July 10, 2020

In order to assist our Trade partners on all existing and new, ticketed and unticketed Group bookings held for travel between June 28 - November 30, 2020, the following policy has been introduced:

For unticketed bookings:

We allow all bookings to be cancelled

 - Penalties do not apply when space is released no less than 30 days prior to outbound travel date

 - Any deposit amount will be retained by British Airways as Credit to be redeemed for travel up to 30 April 2022 (all sectors must be completed by this date)

   To take advantage of this, you must keep a record of the booking reference from the booking you are cancelling, and contact us when you have held your new booking to apply the value of your Credit



For ticketed bookings:

- One free change for travel up to 30 April 2022 (Subject to availability. All sectors must be completed by this date)

- One free name change per passenger

- Re-routing permitted

- Any additional fare and taxes must be collected 

Free changes apply once per ticket, not per policy update.

For all existing and new, ticketed and unticketed Group bookings held for travelling commencing December 1, 2020, Standard Pre-Covid Group Terms and Conditions policy will be re-introduced.
