British Airways has again increased its flying schedule during Unites five day strike (5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 June 2010).

The airline has said it will increase its Heathrow longhaul schedule to more than 80% of flights (up from more than 70% this week and 60% in the first strike period). It will be increasing its Heathrow shorthaul schedule to 60% of flights (up from more than 55% this week and more than 50% in the first strike period).

British Airways flights at Gatwick, the UKs second busiest airport, will remain unaffected by the industrial action, as will flights at London City airport.

The airline will also fly its full schedule (26 departures a week) to South Africa with thousands of fans due to fly out to Johannesburg and Cape Town from Heathrow Terminal 5 ahead of the FIFA World Cup kick-off.

The airline will also continue to fly its entire Heathrow to New York JFK schedule and serve in excess of 85% of its longhaul destinations and 100% of its shorthaul network.

All dedicated cargo freighter services continue to operate as normal.

Customers are advised to check on a regular basis to see if their flight is still operating before departing for the airport. If their flight has been cancelled they should not travel to the airport but contact British Airways or their travel agent.
