Dear Travel Partner
To help stop the spread of
COVID-19 we would like to take this opportunity to remind our partners of
UK Government requirements for passengers entering or returning to the UK.
It is very important that all passengers understand and complete the
required steps prior to commencing their journey. We would kindly ask all
travel partners who send pre-departure communications to British Airways
passengers, to please ensure the below mandatory requirements are clearly
communicated to your customers.
1) All persons (including UK
nationals and residents) arriving in the UK from outside the common
travel area must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken
within 3 days of departure to the UK. Results must be in English, French or
Spanish. For further information please visit: gov.uk
2) To protect your health and
others’, everyone must complete an online passenger
locator form before arrival in the United Kingdom. To complete
the Passenger Locator Form, you need your booking reference for your
testing and quarantine arrangements. You’ll also need to add your flight
and seat numbers.
3) All arrivals must
quarantine for 10 days unless exempt. If you have travelled through a red
list country in the last 10 days, you must have a valid managed
quarantine facility booked prior to departure. For information
please visit: gov.uk
Check the list of exempt
countries immediately before travel and the list of work-related
exemptions if travelling for work.
4) Everyone is required to
take a coronavirus test on days 2 and 8 of their quarantine. You must have
this booked prior to departure. For information please visit: gov.uk
5) It is a legal requirement
that you wear a face covering on public transport in the UK.
6) If you quarantine in
England, you may opt into Test to Release. For further information please
Thank you for your continued
