British Airways has cancelled a number of flights on its direct Abu Dhabi to London service during the first several weeks of Ramadan in a move the airline says is a reflection of customer demand.

The cancellations begin May 16 and will continue through May 6, according to the BA website.

The website offers an alternative route through Bahrain, which will cost approximately AED 7,000 on the dates when direct flights between Abu Dhabi and London are cancelled.

“We remain committed to our daily flights to Abu Dhabi,” an airline spokesman said. “We have made some minor schedule reductions in May and June to match customer demand and we’re contacting any customers who have already booked on these services to rebook them onto alternative flights or to offer a full refund.”

BA flights between London and Dubai will continue as normal throughout the same time period.
