Our first travel evening event was a success last Thursday! We really enjoyed showing everyone behind the scenes at our office and it was great to put some names to the faces of our clients who we speak to all of the time over the phone. Thank you everyone that made it and also a big thank you to Rosemary from Scottish PA Network for joining us. We are looking forward to more events like this in the future. If you would be interested in receiving information about any of our future events please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
British Airways will no longer be providing therapeutic oxygen on short-haul flights departing on or after 1st February 2018. This also includes short-haul segments connecting to and from long-haul flights.

Advice for customers
Accepted oxygen provisions are outlined on the ba.com Travel Assistance pages: www.britishairways.com/en-gb/information/travel-assistance/medical-conditions-and-pregnancy

Will Therapeutic Oxygen still be available on long-haul flights?
Yes, British Airways will continue to provide therapeutic oxygen on board long-haul flights, free of charge. To request this service customers should follow the existing process.
If customers are connecting to/from a short-haul flight they will need to make their own oxygen provision for all short-haul segments of their itinerary.
What if my outbound flight is prior to 1st February 2018 however the inbound flight falls after this date?
This change is effective on all short-haul flights departing on or after 1st February 2018. Customers departing prior to this date may continue to request therapeutic oxygen, providing their return date is before 1st February 2018.
