United Airlines to Add Five New Flights to London Heathrow From March 2022
From March 2022, United Airlines will add five new flights between the U.S. and London Heathrow, with two additional flights from New York-Newark, an additional flight from Denver and San Francisco, as well as an all new direct service from Boston.
On Thursday (October 28, 2021), United Airlines announced an expansion of service between the U.S. and London Heathrow from March 2022. The carrier will add five more flights including two more from New York/Newark, additional trips from both Denver and San Francisco, as well as all new direct service from Boston. With the additional service, United will be the only U.S. carrier to offer nonstop service between the nation’s top seven business markets and London, with 22 daily departures, including more flights between New York City and London than any U.S. carrier.
In Thursday’s announcement, United Airlines’ Vice President of International Networks and Alliances, Patrick Quayle, said,
“For nearly 30 years, United has provided a critical link between the U.S. and London, maintaining service throughout the pandemic and strategically growing our schedule to keep our customers in these key global business centers connected. London is an integral part of United's network and we remain confident demand will continue to grow, particularly as international business travel returns in 2022.”
United Airlines currently offers seven daily flights to London Heathrow with double-daily flights from New York/Newark and Washington D.C., and one daily flight from Chicago, Houston and San Francisco. For December, service will increase to 10 daily flights with additional flights from Newark and Chicago, just in time for Christmas.
From March 2022, United’s all new service from Boston will be operated with a Boeing 767-300ER featuring 46 United Polaris® Business Class seats and 22 United Premium Plus® seats. The carrier’s second daily flight from Denver will be operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, and the sixth and seventh daily flights from Newark will be operated with a Boeing 767-300ER, providing hourly service in the evening. United’s third daily flight between San Francisco and London will be operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, and daily flights will resume from Los Angeles.
