British Airways will resume flights to mainland China from Sunday, 9th August - Announcement

A message from British Airways

"I am delighted to announce that British Airways will resume flights to mainland China from Sunday, 9 August, with tickets on sale on www.ba.com and via travel agents from today. I know many of our customers in both countries have been waiting to be reunited with friends and family and to resume their employment and studies. We look forward to welcoming them back onboard.

The London Heathrow to Shanghai Pudong route will initially operate each Thursday and Sunday, providing more options for customers in the UK who want to return to mainland China. We aim to reopen the Shanghai to London route to passengers, including students taking up places at UK universities this autumn, as soon as possible. Vital medical cargo will continue to be shipped from China to the UK on the return leg during this period.

Flights between London and Beijing remain suspended. British Airways continues to liaise closely with the Chinese authorities with the aim of resuming operations to Beijing Daxing International Airport at the earliest opportunity.

In response to Covid-19, British Airways has introduced a range of measures to keep our customers safe. Prior to travel, they will receive information on changes at their airport and onboard experience and tips on how to prepare for their journey. For more information on our new safety procedures, please visit www.ba.com/welcomeonboard. For details of our flexible booking policy during this period of ongoing uncertainty, please visit www.ba.com/confidence.
