British Airways will resume flights from London Heathrow to Hong Kong on August 16.

This comes after the Hong Kong Government recently eased restrictions for high-risk areas including the UK. Double vaccinated Hong Kong residents from the UK will now be able to return home but must undergo a hotel quarantine for 21 days.

The ten-times-weekly flights from Hong Kong to London Heathrow will also be rescheduled to depart in the evening from August 17 to “make it more convenient for connecting customers”. The airline advises that customers visit for the latest information.

The airline recently extended its flexible booking policies, allowing customers with flight or holiday bookings due to be completed by August 31, 2022 to either make amendments or cancel their trip in return for voucher credit.

Alongside this change, the validity of voucher credits has also been extended for use on trips until September 30, 2023.

British Airways has also launched a new interactive map providing its customers with the latest travel restrictions and entry requirements.
