ALERT British Airways to axe 15 long-haul routes


British Airways has cancelled services to more than 15 long-haul destinations next year.

Routes to cities in North America such as Pittsburgh, Calgary and Charleston have gone, alongside flights to Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and Osaka.

The Seychelles, a popular winter holiday destination, has also been removed.

Muscat, Jeddah and Abu Dhabi routes are axed, and BA will also temporarily suspend flights to Sydney, Bangkok and San Jose during the summer of 2021.

BA said it was sorry and that customers on cancelled flights are entitled to a full refund.

Previously, BA has said it does not expect international travel to return to pre-pandemic levels until 2023.
