British Airways has extended the use of “eVouchers” for travel up to and including 30 April 2023.
Passengers who had booked to fly with BA and did not wish to travel have been issued with “eVouchers” which can be used online to pay for future flight bookings.
Until today, 28 January 2021, eVouchers could only be used for flight bookings that had been fully completed by 30 April 2022.
In a sign that there is limited prospect of international travel returning to normal until well into 2022, this deadline has been extended to 30 April 2023. This applies to all eVouchers. Any existing eVouchers issued with a previous deadline of 30 April 2022 are automatically extended.
It should be emphasised that this is the deadline for travel to be completed, not for bookings to be made.
The deadline for the use “Future Travel Vouchers” which were issued in the early stages of the pandemic has also been extended to 30 April 2023.
This follows a decision by the airline to remove the expiry date of its “Book With Confidence” policy, whereby change fees are waived for all new flight bookings with also the option to convert the value of their ticket into an eVoucher.
