British Airways has severely cut its schedule for flights out of London from March 16 and 28 amid the spread of coronavirus.
The airline cut 216 flights from London to destinations all over the world, including New York, Italy, France, and Germany. The carrier, along with British low-cost airline Ryanair, made the decision on Tuesday to cut the flights, citing a drop in demand for the flights and uncertainty amid coronavirus spread.
"We recognise the increased uncertainty that coronavirus (COVID-19) may be causing. This situation will remain under review and we will continue to provide regular updates," British Airways' latest update reads.
At the same time, British said it will waive all change fees for new bookings made over the next two weeks. That applies for flight bookings made between Tuesday March 3 and Monday March 16 on all routes, with no fee up to the time of departure.
