British Airways has temporarily suspended flights to and from Liberia and Sierra Leone until 31 August 2014 due to the deteriorating public health situation in both countries.

The safety of customers, crew and ground teams is always the airline’s top priority and these routes will be kept under constant review in the coming weeks.

Customers who have tickets to fly on the routes up to 31 August 2014 have the following options:

  • A full refund.
  • Rebook for a later date on a British Airways flight to/from Liberia or Sierra Leone from 1 September 2014.
  • Rebook with British Airways on flights in August between London and Abuja, Lagos, Accra or Nairobi. The journey between Liberia or Sierra Leone to/from these four African cities will be at the customers’ own expense.

BA is also speaking with other carriers to discuss other options that may be available for customers.
