Today (February 19, 2021), United Airlines announced plans to begin new daily nonstop service between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and London-Heathrow (LHR), providing East Coast customers another option when traveling to London. The route will be operated with a Boeing 767-300ER configured with 46 United Polaris Business Class, 22 United Premium Plus and 56 Economy Class seats. The aircraft will feature the highest proportion of premium seats on any U.S. carrier widebody aircraft to London. Tickets on the new route will be available for purchase in the coming weeks.

In Friday’s announcement, United Airlines’ Vice President of International and Network, Patrick Quayle, said,

“We are thrilled to offer travelers a convenient, non-stop option between Boston and London with this addition to our global network. We will continue to monitor the demand recovery and travel restrictions as we finalize the start date for this service later in 2021.”

United Airlines has provided service to London-Heathrow for nearly 30 years and has maintained connectivity between the U.S. and London throughout the pandemic. With the addition of Boston, United will offer 19 daily flights to London-Heathrow.
