BA's Voluntary COVID Test

British Airways has announced the launch of a voluntary Covid-19 test for passengers travelling to the UK from three US airports.

British Airways chief executive Sean Doyle said:

 “If we have a testing formula it gives people certainty from which they can plan.”

The trial begins on 25 November and will be free to eligible customers on three flights:

-American Airlines flight AA50 from Dallas Fort Worth to Heathrow
-British Airways flight BA268 from Los Angeles to Heathrow
-British Airways flight BA114 from New York John F. Kennedy to Heathrow.

Customers will be tested 72 hours before their trip, as well as during and after travelling.

This is of course utterly pointless, if the UK government doesn't change its stance on quarantine!

BA To Pull Out of Gatwick?

In addition to looking to cut 12,000 staff from its workforce of 42,000 there are signs that BA may well not return to Gatwick once Covid-19 has ended.

The admission came in a memo, written by the head of BA's Gatwick hub and seen by BBC News.

BA's Gatwick operation, which is currently suspended, is roughly a fifth as big as its Heathrow hub.

In the memo to Gatwick's staff, the company says:
"As you know, we suspended our Gatwick flying schedule at the start of April and there is no certainty as to when or if these services can or will return.

We need to ensure that our remaining operation is efficient, flexible and cost-competitive to enable us to survive in an increasingly lean and unpredictable industry."
Post Covid it is clear that the airline and travel industry will take quite some time to recover. Not least, because governments will most likely expect visitors from abroad to quarantine on arrival and airlines will be expected to practice social distancing in airports and on flights.
