Amended Travel Dates for London 2012 Olympic Bookings

21 November 2011
British Airways has shortened the travel period for any new group bookings made during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The changes will be more favourable for groups travelling just outside of these dates.

The London 2012 Olympic Games will take place between 27 July and 12 August 2012 and the Paralympic Games between 29 August and 09 September 2012. Travel dates that fall into
British Airways’ Terms and Conditions for Olympic group bookings have now been amended to:

Groups travelling into the UK from 20 July to 13 August 2012 that will depart the UK from 27 July to 19 August 2012 (previous dates were 16 July – 29 August 2012 inclusive). The new dates are only applicable to new bookings made on or after 21 November 2011. All existing bookings for the Olympics made prior to this date will still fall under the Olympic Terms and Conditions and not the standard Terms and Conditions.

The shortened travel dates mean that any new groups being booked to travel to the UK after 13 August 2012 will now benefit from BA’s standard Groups Terms and Conditions. These terms offer greater flexibility for group bookings on commitment date, payments, group reductions and naming dates.
