British Airways Consolidates London Flights To Heathrow T5 (Gatwick Suspended)

British Airways has decided to consolidate all its flights to London Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5 suspending operations at Gatwick and moving flights over from Terminal 3.

Forbes “Did British Airways Make One Cut Too Many”

The London City Airport (LCY) is closed through the end of April (BA had flights there too), and BA’s competitor EasyJet has decided to ground its fleet indefinitely (read more here).

Here’s an excerpt from the BBC (access their piece here):

British Airways will suspend all flights to and from London’s Gatwick airport amid a collapse in demand due to the coronavirus.

British Airways told staff it was facing a challenging market environment in “unprecedented circumstances”, according to an email seen by the BBC.

The airline said it would contact customers to “discuss their options”.

“Due to the considerable restrictions and challenging market environment, like many other airlines, we will temporarily suspend our flying schedule at Gatwick,” the airline said in a statement.

Conclusion

British Airways used terminals 3 (shared with several airlines including Emirates and American) and 5 (exclusively for BA flights) at Heathrow. The airline had flights at London City Airpot and Gatwick (+ I believe that they had some weekend flights out from Luton) too that are now all consolidated to Terminal 5.

When airlines get back to normalcy and start reintroduction flights after the peak of the pandemic, it remains to be seen how fast they all return or don’t to all these airports and terminals.
