British Airways Cuts 15 Long-Haul Destinations As A Result Of COVID-19 Related Losses

British Airways has announced that it will be cancelling services to more than 15 long-haul destinations in the upcoming year as a result of the devastating impacts because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Major routes to cities in North America such as Pittsburgh, Calgary and Charleston will be cut, alongside flights to Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and Osaka in Asia.

British Airways has lost £4 billion in the first half of this year

The Seychelles has also been removed from the schedule. Further, routes to Muscat, Jeddah and Abu Dhabi have also been called off. The airline has confirmed that it will also temporarily suspend flights to Sydney, Bangkok and San Jose during the summer of 2021. The pandemic has forced the airline to operate on a reduced and more dynamic schedule. Their losses have surpassed that of the financial crisis of 2008 and the September 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York. The airline lost almost £4 billion in the first half of this year.
