British Airways is to suspend its service from London Heathrow to Baku (Azerbaijan) from Friday 29 April 2016.

The airline has cited unsatisfactory commercial performance as the reason for the cancellation.

Passengers affected by the cancellation have the option of rebooking on an alternative BA flight before Friday 29 April 2016 or a full refund.

Will British Airways rebook me on to another airline between London Heathrow and Baku?

BA has now agreed rebooking options with a number of airlines which include Azerbaijan Airlines from London Heathrow, Lufthansa via Frankfurt, Air Baltic via Riga, Turkish Airlines via Istanbul and Ukraine International Airlines via Kyiv Boryspil International. Note that some options are not available for tickets purchased using the Avios frequent flyer currency.

Affected passengers should contact their travel agent, or if your booking was made directly with BA, you can access your booking via the Manage My Booking on the BA website.

The London Heathrow – Baku route was one which has inherited by British Airways following its merger with bmi in 2012. It joins a long list of former bmi London Heathrow routes which have been suspended by BA and include Almaty, Damascus, Addis Ababa, Dammam, Bishkek, Khartoum, Yerevan, Amristar, Casablanca, Marrakech and Tbilisi.

Azerbaijan Airlines will continue to fly between London Heathrow and Baku.

The opening of Terminal 2 at London Heathrow this year has resulted in a large number of airlines moving out of Terminals 1 and 3.

As a consequence of this, Terminal 1 is due to close next year and BA will also be consolidating its operations in Terminals 3 and 5.

A series of terminal moves will be taking place next year. As part of this, from Tuesday 30 June 2015 BA’s medium haul flights to Amman, Beirut, Baku and Cairo flights will move from Terminal 1 to Terminal 5.

From this date, BA will have no further flights from Terminal 1.

With the exception of Cairo, these routes were inherited by BA following the acquisition of bmi by its parent company International Airlines Group in 2012.
