British Airways has suspended its daily service from London Heathrow to Calgary for the winter season.  The route now operates on a summer seasonal basis only.

The last outbound and inbound flight operates on Saturday 27 October 2018. The service resumes on Sunday 31 March 2019 until Monday 25 October 2019.

It then resumes again, initially four times weekly, on Sunday 29 March 2020 until Saturday 3 October 2020.  The affected flight numbers are BA102 and BA103.

No specific reason has been given for the cancellation.  However, it is a reasonable assumption that unsatisfactory commercial performance is behind the decision.

BA started flying from London Heathrow to Calgary in December 2006, initially with a Boeing 767 aircraft.  The route then changed to a Boeing 787 in July 2014.

Air Canada will continue to fly direct from London Heathrow to Calgary year-round.

One thought on “BA suspends London Heathrow – Calgary for winter season”

  1. Dear Sir/Madam – As loyal BA customers my wife and myself cannot understand why BA have suspended their service from Heathrow to Calgary.

    Our experience, over many years of flying this route, is that the flights have been full to capacity on most occasions, with only a small number of unused seats available very occasionally.

    The article says that “whilst no specific reason has been given, unsatisfactory commercial performance could be presumed to account for the decision to suspend this route”.

    Surely “bums on seats” equates to commercial viability …. ????

    What an awful disservice to the loyal BA customers whom expected more from what they once recognised as the world’s best airline.
