British Airways has pulled out of an appearance at the Jersey International Air Display.

The airline had been due to display its retro-styled BEA Livery aircraft on Thursday 12 September.

However, it says that industrial action has affected the flight schedule and that it will take 'some time' to get it back to normal.

BA also apologised for the impact the disruption had had on customers.

We are very sorry for the disruption BALPA's industrial action has caused our customers in the last few days.

We are doing everything we can to get back to normal and to get our customers to their destinations. The nature of our highly complex, global operations means that it will take some time to get back to a completely normal flight schedule. For this reason, it is with regret that we will not be able to take part in the Jersey Air Show.

We would like to apologise to anyone attending the show, who was looking forward to seeing our BEA livery aircraft. The aircraft will continue to operate across our UK and European network until the end of next year.

– British Airways

Other events at the Jersey International Air Display will include a Chinook helicopter and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

The displays will take place from 1:00pm in St Aubin's Bay.
