France-UK flights canceled due to coronavirus

British Airways has canceled approximately 171 flights to and from London Heathrow and Gatwick, including a dozen services in the UK – France and France – UK.

The airline said it contacted passengers interested in rebooking or receiving a refund.

Numerous other destinations are affected including Italy, Belgium, Ireland, Germany and New York’s JFK airport.

Connection reader Diana Jackson told us how her flight from London to France after a vacation was canceled just five minutes yesterday after making an online reservation. However, she praised the speed with which she was transferred to another flight on the same day. He said: “It was quickly resolved.”

A British Airways spokesman said: “This is a rapidly moving situation. We follow the advice of the competent authorities.

“We will contact customers if flights are canceled to discuss their options, including if possible booking on other carriers, full refunds or booking with BA for a later travel date.

“Customers can also find the latest information and options on BA.com.”

Easyjet and Ryanair also reduced their number of flights, mainly to and from Italy, between March 13 and April 4.

Ryanair cut 25% of its flights due to a lack of reservations. The company said that all affected customers will be informed of changes to the program at least 14 days in advance.
