BA extends suspension of flights to West Africa until year-end

British Airways has extended its voluntary suspension of services to Liberia and Sierra Leone over ongoing concerns with the Ebola outbreak.

In a statement, the airline said: “British Airways has suspended flights to and from Liberia and Sierra Leone, until December 31st, 2014 due to the concerns about the health situation in those two countries.”

BA had previously announced the suspension of services to the region until September. Passengers affected by the extension will be offered refunds or changes to travel dates; or will be offered alternative services to Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria.

British Airways is one of several international carriers to suspend services to the region, the others including Ivorian Air, Emirates, ASky and Korean Air.
