British Airways has extended its Book With Confidence policy to keep up with the huge travel disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the ever-changing global restrictions and quarantine regulations that come with it.

In the latest round of amendments, British Airways has removed deadline travel dates for future bookings. Rather than requiring passengers rebook travel by 30 August 2021, the airline has removed its date limit, meaning passengers can rebook travel through the rest of the published schedule.

In an update in October 2020, the airline announced that existing bookings made before the coronavirus pandemic to travel by 10 January 2021 would benefit from flexible changes or receive a Future Travel Voucher.

Now, however, if you booked a flight on or after 3 March 2020, you can claim a voucher for the full value of your booking, which will be valid until 30 April 2022. Alternatively, if you booked prior to the pandemic — 3 March 2020, as BA clarifies it — you can claim a voucher for the travel so long as it was due to start by 28 February 2021. That has been extended from January.

Vouchers can be used as payment or part payment for a future booking, though note that all future travel must be fully completed by 30 April 2022.
