British Airways will launch a third daily flight between New York-Newark and London Heathrow from June 6, 2022, to support the return of business travel. The new daytime flight will depart Newark at 07:55, while the return flight will depart London at 19:10.
On Thursday (February 17, 2022), British Airways announced the launch of a third daily service between New York-Newark (EWR) and London Heathrow (LHR) starting June 6, 2022, to support the return of business travel. The additional daytime service will depart Newark at 07:55 in the morning, allowing travelers to spend an extra night in New York, while the return flight will depart London at 19:10 in the evening, allowing visitors to spend the day in London before departing for Newark. British Airways will also resume ‘daylight’ service from New York-JFK in March, a particularly convenient new option for business travelers.
In Thursday’s announcment, British Airways’ Director on Networks and Alliances, Neil Chernoff, said,
“We are pleased to be launching our third daily flight from Newark, to further strengthen our New York – London schedule. The convenient morning departure is popular with customers who might prefer having an extra night in New York or arriving in London in the evening to start their following day more refreshed. Including American Airlines, we offer the largest and most convenient schedules from the New York area to London and are the only airline or alliance that offers service to and from both major New York and London airports. As we continue to co-locate our New York and London operations with American Airlines, we will provide a more seamless journey for our customers allowing them to access our combined 15 daily departures.”
The new daytime Newark-Heathrow service will be operated with a Boeing 777-200 featuring 48 Club World seats, 40 World Traveller Plus seats and 184 World Traveller seats. Business Class guests will enjoy the carrier’s Club Suite experience with direct aisle access, a suite door for greater privacy and luxurious lie-flat bed seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. The Business seats also offer 40 percent more storage, a vanity unit and mirror, Wi-Fi, PC/USB power, and 18.5-inch IFE screens with high definition gate-to-gate programming.
Tickets are now bookable on the new daytime flights between New York-Newark and London Heathrow with return fares from $690 in World Traveller and $3,195 in Club World (Includes taxes, fees and carrier charges for the lowest daytime fare).
