Pre-departure Covid testing on inbound to UK
The UK Government has confirmed that from 0400 on 15 January 2021, all inbound passengers travelling to England will be required to present a negative Covid-19 test, taken up to 72 hours prior to departure. This includes UK citizens and those transiting airside via a UK airport. A limited number of exceptions are set out on the gov.uk website.
Please continue to check the gov.uk website regularly as further information will be provided regarding testing standards and what passengers will be required to have with them at check-in and at the UK border.
As we continue to respond to the ever-changing situation, we are operating a reduced and dynamic schedule. If your customers’ flights are cancelled, we will contact you but please always encourage your customers to check the status of their flights on ba.com before travelling to the airport. Please also ensure their contact details are up to date within ‘Manage My Booking’.
We also continue to offer flexibility if customers need to change their travel plans with our Book with Confidence policy, for more details click here.
