British Airways has extended its “book with confidence” policy for new flight bookings.
Passengers who have made bookings since 3 March 2020 for travel up to Thursday 31 December 2020 have the flexibility to change their bookings without incurring a change fee, or to exchange the value of their ticket for future travel up to 30 April 2022.
This policy was due to end on Sunday 31 May 2020. It has now been extended to all new bookings made up to Friday 31 July 2020.
Separate to this, all passengers due to travel up to 31 July 2020 already have the option to exchange the value of their ticket for a voucher for future travel up to 30 April 2022. This applies regardless of when the booking was made.
Given the uncertainty over international travel in 2020, particularly regarding quarantine restrictions, this is unlikely to make a difference to booking patterns. There are also likely to be substantial changes to BA schedules for the rest of the year.
When there is certainty that international travel can resume, there is likely to be a substantial effort on the part of airlines to encourage people to fly again.

Please review this carefully, including the terms and conditions for flight and holiday bookings, before making any new bookings or changes to existing bookings. These policies are subject to change at short notice.
