On Wednesday (July 28, 2021), United Airlines announced that with the UK reopening to fully vaccinated U.S. travelers from August 2, 2021, the carrier will offer up to 40 weekly flights. In August, United will offer six daily flights between the U.S. and London, including a second daily flight from Washington, D.C. and daily service from Houston. In the coming months, the airline will resume additional London service including new flights from Boston. Customers traveling to London must be fully vaccinated with FDA approved vaccines and must take a PCR test prior to departure, and an additional PCR test within two days of arrival. Additionally, U.S. travelers will be required to complete a passenger locator form before traveling, and will also need to provide proof of U.S. residency.

United Airlines has offered service to London Heathrow for nearly 30 years and has maintained essential connectivity throughout the pandemic. In addition to daily service from Houston and double-daily flights from Washington, D.C., United will continue to operate daily flights to London from Chicago, New York/Newark and San Francisco. United Airlines offers flights to more European destinations than any other U.S. airline, including new routes to Dubrovnik (Croatia), Reykjavik (Iceland) and Athens (Greece).

United Airlines’ shared purpose is “Connecting People. Uniting the World.” Shares in the company’s parent, United Airlines Holdings, Inc., are publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the symbol ‘UAL.’
