Which British Airways Flights Will Be Cancelled In The BA Strike?


To find out whether your British Airways flight will be cancelled in the BA strike, take a look at the list below.

Strike dates are set for Sunday 25 December and Monday 26 December 2016 and will be hitting services from Heathrow, which will make a misery of many people’s Christmas. The current plan is to operate all long-haul services. Services from Gatwick and London City will not be impacted at all.

The following short-haul routes are at risk of cancellation on 25th and 26th:

  • Aberdeen
  • Bergen
  • Belfast City
  • Bilbao
  • Bologna
  • Basel
  • Budapest
  • Dusseldorf
  • Gibraltar
  • Gothenburg
  • Hannover
  • Hamburg
  • Helsinki
  • Kiev
  • Krakow
  • St Petersburg
  • Lisbon
  • Luxembourg
  • Manchester
  • Paris Orly
  • Oslo
  • Prague
  • Pisa
  • Stuttgart
  • Stavanger
  • Venice
  • Vienna
  • Warsaw
  • Zagreb

Passengers booked on these routes currently have the option of requesting a refund for their flight, transferring to another BA flight on a different day or flying to another city within 300 miles, not on the list above.

BA will not move you to a different airline at this stage. This may become an option when your flight is definitely cancelled.
