Important information if you are travelling to Thailand - BA flights


There has been continued civil unrest in and around Bangkok, Thailand. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is warning that only essential travel should be made to Bangkok and exercise caution for travel to other areas in Thailand.


In response to this the following BA guidelines have been issued if you are due to travel or are already in Thailand.


If you hold a BA ticket to travel in the next 7 days but have not yet commenced their journey you may,

  • Rebook onto an available BA flight to the same destination up to 30 June 2010.
  • Rebook to an alternative destination, the value of your exsiting ticket can be used towards the purchase of your new one. If the new fare is more expensive then any additional fare is payable by the passenger.

If you hold a BA ticket but are part way through their journey,

  • Rebook onto the next available BA flight back to your original origin or leave earlier to continue your journey


If you are due to stop over in Thailand you may,

  • Rebook your journey, remove Bangkok as a stop-over and continue to the next destination point
