British Airways will permanently axe 13 long-haul destinations from its network next summer, and will suspend flights to Sydney, Bangkok and San Jose until October.

From the start of the summer season in late March, the UK carrier will no longer serve the US cities of Charleston and Pittsburgh, or Calgary in Canada. It will also drop Dammam in Saudi Arabia and Durban in South Africa, along with Kuala Lumpur, Osaka and Seoul in Asia Pacific.

Abu Dhabi, Peruvian capital Lima and Muscat in Oman will also be dropped from its network at the end of March.

BA will stop serving the Seychelles on 24 April, and flights to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia will end, although a “short ad hoc” service will be operated over the Hajj period in July, says BA.

The carrier plans to suspend flights to Bangkok and Sydney from the end of March until 30 October, while service to San Jose will be suspended between 17 April and the end of October.

Customers with tickets booked for flights to Calgary and Jeddah after service discontinues are advised to rebook without charge on to flights to Vancouver and Riyadh, respectively. Passengers with reservations on other routes can rebook on partner airlines, where possible.
