British Airways is to temporarily suspended operations at London City airport.

BA has previously suspended its all business class service to New York JFK until September 2020.

The airline has also suspended all short-haul flights operated by its subsidiary BA CityFlyer from Monday 23 March until mid July 2020 at the earliest.

Passengers whose flights have been cancelled will be re-accommodated on alternative services from London Heathrow.

Passengers should receive an e-mail to advise that they have been automatically rebooked.

In theory, passengers are also entitled to a refund as their original flight has been cancelled. However, if you try to do this on ba.com you will be offered a voucher for redemption against a future booking.

Passengers can check the status of their booking using the Manage My Booking tool on ba.com. If you need to contact BA, telephone numbers are on this page of ba.com

All airlines are asking passengers not to contact them unless they are due to travel within the next 72 hours.

A very large number of BA short-haul flights have been cancelled outside of the dates above, and this is likely to continue until August at the earliest.

Given how fast moving events are with Coronavirus, further cancellations, and indeed airport closures, are possible.
