British Airways has launched a new interactive map providing its customers with the latest travel restrictions and entry requirements.
The map is accessible through the existing Covid hub and is expected to be integrated into ba.com. It allows visitors to learn about travel restrictions in each country before booking a trip. Customers can search by traffic light color or by typing in their destination, and a filter showing vaccination status helps to narrow the results.
The page was designed by the company Sherpa and gathers up-to-date information for more than 100 countries. The central Covid-19 airline page contains information on flexible booking, screening, voucher use and onboard measures.
We know that travel in this new Covid era can feel overwhelming for our customers, and our job is to make their lives as straightforward as possible. This new tool, which has been tried and is trusted by our joint business partner, American Airlines, will help people navigate the differing entry requirements, to allow for a smooth booking and travel experience.

Easyjet has a similar online tool which features a live travel map showing the latest restrictions for travel to and from the 35 countries on Easyjet’s European network.
Airline alliance groups Oneworld and Skyteam recently enhanced their Covid-19 information portals, while London City airport launched a new passenger travel portal in May.
