British Airways Cabin Crew Strike

Please see below the latest update from our underwriters TIF in regards to the British Airways Cabin Crew Strike.

Last updated 15/02/2017

Following the announced strike taking place by British Airways cabin crew from February 17th to 20th inclusive, we here at Travel Insurance Facilities would like to clarify our position.

British Airways have announced contingency plans and you can find this information on their website as follows:

Extension of your Travel Insurance

Cover for medical expenses will be extended in the event of a delay or failure of public transport services during your trip which result in you being unable to complete your trip before your travel policy expires.

Strike and Industrial Action

Our policies do not cover strike or industrial action in any of our sections. We would refer clients to the airlines or their tour operator for compensation where “the other party to the contract will give prompt assistance to a consumer in difficulty”, as per the package travel regulations found here The Package Travel Compensation

In the event that you have specific questions not answered by this directive, please feel free to contact us on we will endeavour to offer an answer.
