Update on Heathrow capacity capping - 02 August 2022

Dear Partner,


Last week we wrote to you advising of actions we were taking in response to capacity capping at Heathrow Airport.

We communicated that we would review our actions this week and would like to provide you with an update.

To help maximise rebooking options for existing customers, we’ve decided to take further responsible action and limit the available fares on some Heathrow services.

Short-haul flights departing from Heathrow will now be closed for sale until 15 August 2022 in all channels. These flights will not be available to book via or via our partners.

We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause and would like to thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

We will continue to keep our Trade Support website updated with the latest information to help keep you informed.

Kind regards,

British Airways
