British Airways address immigration delays at Lyon, Milan, Linate, Madrid & Barcelona

British Airways have commented on the continuing immigration delays at a number of European airports.

Over the past few days, the media have been reporting on Passport Immigration queues at several airports with customers experiencing delays due to extra checks on both arrivals and departures.

The main delay issues which ebb and flow at different parts of the day are in Lyon(LYS), Milan Linate (LIN), Madrid (MAD) and Barcelona (BCN), but other airports are affected as well especially on peak days on some of the Spanish islands.

British Airways have asked us to advise customers that British Airways flights continue to operate as planned. They added: “These extra checks are beyond our control but we apologise for any inconvenience to their journey through the airport. We advise departing customers to allow extra time as they may experience longer queues at this busy time of the year.”
