British Airways is to reopen three UK lounges next week, as part of a “phased rollout of lounge openings”.

The carrier’s lounges at Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow airports will reopen on Monday July 19, joining existing facilities in operation at London Heathrow T5.

Following the government’s decision to end lockdown rules in England from next week, the carrier will also resume priority boarding services for eligible customers from July 19.

As reported earlier this week, BA is also resuming its buy on board service for economy passengers on short-haul flights from July 19, initially on selected routes from Heathrow.
