Flights currently start from as little as £31 each way to Europe. Customers whose flights were affected over recent months and who claimed a voucher can use it towards the flights.

Alternatively, Avios can also be used towards Reward flights, upgrades, hotels and car rental. When using Avios part payment, customers can pick from a range of savings by destination and cabin and they still collect Avios and Tier Points on their booking.

There is also the option to pay a deposit for a BA Holidays trip and change the dates and destinations for a flight, or receive a voucher if they prefer not to travel. British Airways’ insurance, which is provided by Allianz Assistance also covers for epidemics and pandemics. Customers should check ba.com for full details.

Alex Cruz, British Airways’ chairman and CEO, said: “We’re gradually returning to more of our network and will be flying to some great holiday destinations over the summer with seats from as little as £31 each way.

“We know people want to be able to book with confidence, so we’ve introduced a range of flexible booking options to set their minds at rest, such as being able to change a booking free of charge or cancel and receive a voucher for travel at a later date.”

Safety is at the heart of British Airways’ business and the airline has introduced a range of measures, which it requires customers and crew abide by. These include:

  • checking-in online, downloading their boarding pass and where possible self-scanning their boarding passes at the departure gate
  • observing social distancing and using hand sanitisers that are placed throughout airports
  • wearing a facemask at all times and bringing enough to replace them every four hours for longer flights
  • asking customers not to travel if they think they have any symptoms of Covid-19
  • cabin crew wearing PPE and a new food service, which reduces the number of interactions required with customers
  • asking customers to ensure they have everything they need from their hand luggage before departure, and where possible, storing their carry-on bag under the seat in front of them
