British Airways To Store 40 Aircraft From Today [UPDATED]

British Airways will store 40 short haul aircraft at Bournemouth from today.

Currently there are 10 A320 series parked up in Glasgow, including 6 Airbus A321’s. There is a further Airbus A320 (G-MIDT) there for scheduled maintenance.

Most of the BA Cityflyer fleet is currently parked up at Norwich, in preparation for them suspending flights from today.

As the BA maintenance base is in Cardiff, this is a good a place as any for the airline to store aircraft. Currently, Boeing 777-200ER’s G-YMMO and G-YMMP are there, along with Boeing 747’s G-BYGB and G-CIVZ.

At Heathrow, there are a number of short haul Airbus parked up, including A320neo, G-TTNL.

And finally, there are three Airbus A319’s parked up at Gatwick.

Going forward, it’s been rumoured that British Airways will run a skeleton fleet of just Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 aircraft on long haul routes.

Therefore a large number of the long haul fleet will be spread across various airports across the UK, as well as Heathrow when it comes to those aircraft being stored.

Due to the sheer size of the Airbus A380, it will be interesting to see where British Airways store those. At a total guess, I would say they are most likely to stay at Heathrow. Either at the maintenance base, or on stand at Terminal 5C. It has been rumoured that this satellite will close in the coming days. This will enable the stands to be used to store aircraft.

I will attempt to update this post with the latest info as I find it.
