The summer travel season begins today, Sunday 27 March 2022.

Whilst this summer should mark a return to near normal for the travel industry, BA has publicly acknowledged it is struggling to resource its current schedules. It remains to be seen if this will ease in the coming weeks. It is inevitable that, at Heathrow, short haul flights will bear the brunt of late cancellations.

Here are the main schedule changes for the summer season, which officially runs until Saturday 29 October 2022.

Readers can keep up to date with route changes throughout the season with our dedicated page for BA’s short haul route network and well as a dedicated route guide for Terminal 3.

New Routes

BA returns to Nuremberg today with a new year round route from Heathrow.

Later this summer, BA will fly to The Azores for the first time with two new seasonal routes to Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island and Terceira Island. The routes launch on 2 & 10 July respectively.
