British Airways Doubles Flights To India
The United Kingdom recently moved India to the ‘Amber’ list from the “Red’ list which allows fully vaccinated passengers from India to enter the UK without the need for compulsory 10-day hotel quarantine.
The change in requirements has led to a spike in bookings for flights between the two countries due to which British Airways is doubling flights to India.
British Airways said on Tuesday said that it has increased flights between India and the UK from 10 to 20 per week starting 16th August.
The airline is operating flights to London Heathrow Airport from Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad.
Under the rules for ‘Amber’ list countries, passengers traveling must take the COVID test three days before departure and must book in advance for two COVID tests to be taken upon arrival.
Upon arrival, passengers must complete a locator form and should complete a mandatory home quarantine for 10 days.
