British Airways has cancelled all fights to and from Italy after the country was put on lockdown over coronavirus.

A spokesperson for BA said: ‘In light of the Italian government’s announcement and the UK government’s official travel advice, we have contacted all customers who are due to travel today (10 March).’

The airline said it had axed its 60 flights a day to cities including Milan, Venice and Rome after the Government decided anyone arriving in the UK from the country must self-isolate for a fortnight afterwards.

Anyone who has booked to travel to or from the coronavirus-hit country can rebook at a later date or have a full refund.
