British Airways has announced that it is planning to cut 10,000 flights between October and March to/from Heathrow Airport this winter.

In a statement to BBC News, the airline explained:

(m)ost cancellations will be on routes which have other daily services to the same destinations… Passengers affected by the changes will be offered an alternative flight with BA or another airline or a refund.

BA insisted the impact for customers was “minimal”, with the majority of flights unchanged.

“Customers booked for winter will be able to travel as planned and are being given several months’ notice of any changes”

Given the chaos we’ve seen at Heathrow and the ongoing passenger limits that have been imposed by the airport this summer, it seems sensible to reduce some frequencies.

Bottom line

It is good to see British Airways being pro-active and announcing these changes months in advance, rather than as a last-minute panic. If you think your flight might be affected, keep a look out for any emails from BA in the coming days/weeks and check your booking online.
