UK: British Airways Pauses Short-Haul Flight Sales From Heathrow

Source: US News & World Report

“British Airways said Tuesday that it’s suspending sales of short-haul flights from London’s Heathrow Airport, a response to the airport’s request to limit bookings to help ease travel disruptions caused by booming demand and staff shortages. The suspension applies to new bookings for domestic U.K. and European destinations departing from Heathrow, Britain’s busiest airport. British Airways said the move applies to short-haul flights only, generally defined as up to three hours, which would rule out cities such as Manchester, Paris, Berlin, Madrid and Zurich. The airline initially said the freeze would cover flights until Monday but later extended it for a week.” (08/02/22)
