All passengers are required to wear a face mask at all times. Generally, one mask lasts for four hours so it’s suggested to bring enough for a journey. Travellers are encouraged to check-in online or with the BA app. You will be offered a new food service which will reduce physical contact with a crew. All British Airways aircraft use HEPA filters that remove microscopic bacteria and virus clusters with over 99.9% efficiency (equivalent to hospital operating theatre standards). The air in the cabin gets replaced every 2–3 minutes.
All UK passport holders should check the updated government advice regarding passport validity requirements. It is the passengers’ responsibility to ensure that they have valid documents for travel. In 2021, you’ll only need a visa if you will be staying in Europe for longer than 90 days. From 2022, the EU will be introducing a European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS). This will be similar to the ESTA system for travelling to the USA and you will need to register your details online before you travel.
