Bad news for travellers hoping to head on a trip to London in the near future.

British Airways has scrapped a number of direct flights to the English capital from Abu Dhabi during Ramadan.

The airline giants say it’s the result of a lack of customer demand.

The changes begin on May 16 and will continue until June 6, according to the BA website.

It is expected Ramadan will fall on May 17 this year and continue until June 15.

A spokesman for BA said: “We remain committed to our daily flights to Abu Dhabi.

“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.”

London is always a popular tourist destination for world travellers, with famous sights such as London Bridge, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.
