The Covid-19 pandemic continues to have a severe impact on the global economy, our nation and the travel and aviation industry.
We are continually reviewing our flying schedules, taking into account the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice against all non-essential travel and continued restrictions in many of the destinations we fly to, including the United States, where a travel embargo for travel from the UK, Ireland, and other parts of Europe came in to effect on 16 March 2020. The UK Government also announced 14-day quarantine rules for people arriving in to the UK, which took effect on 8th June. For further information please visit https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice.
The safety and wellbeing of our people and our customers is always our number one priority. Given the unprecedented circumstances, we’re making some changes to our fleet and schedule, to reshape our business and ensure it is fit for the future, both in response to the impact of Covid-19 and in support of our drive towards greener, more sustainable air travel.
As a result we’ll be moving our flying programme from London Gatwick to our London Heathrow hub, whilst retaining the opportunity to return to Gatwick in the future.
