British Airways will let staff split their working lives between the head office and home in another example of big firms offering flexible employment.

The airline is also exploring the sale of its huge Waterside HQ near Heathrow Airport, where 2,000 people worked before the coronavirus lockdown.

"It's not clear if such a large office will play a part in our future," BA said in a message to staff.

The firm is in a race to cut costs after the virus led travel to collapse.

BA, part of the IAG airline group that also owns Iberia and Aer Lingus, has shed more than 10,000 jobs and is raising billions of pounds of extra cash from shareholders to shore up its finances.
