Just weeks after British Airways announced they had replaced CEO Alex Cruz with previous Aer Lingus boss Sean Doyle, the international airline has announced a big change that will impact Aussies hoping to get home for Christmas. The airline first cancelled its service to Sydney, which goes via Singapore, in April but there was hope the route would be relaunched next month. “Policies are in place to ensure maximum flexibility for our customers,” Mark Muren, BA’s head of global sales, told Executive Traveller . “If a flight is cancelled, customers will be entitled to a refund as per our standard customer guidelines. The order essentially permits the Government to impose restrictions on overseas travel, restrictions on the entry of cruise ships into Australia as well as protections for the supply and sale of certain essential goods and restrictions on retail stores at international airports.
