United Airlines will build its service to London Heathrow Airport to 22 daily flights by next spring, including new direct service from Boston, the carrier announced.
Currently, United is flying to London—its most frequently booked international destination for its business customers this month, according to the carrier—on seven daily routes: two from each Newark Liberty and Washington Dulles airports as well as one daily flight from Chicago, Houston and San Francisco. In December, United will bump that up to 10 daily flights, adding additional service from Newark and Chicago.
Service from Boston will begin in March, and United also will resume service from Denver and Los Angeles as it restores its pre-pandemic network to London. Beyond that, United will be adding four new flights in addition to the Boston service: a second daily flight from Denver, a third daily flight from San Francisco and sixth and seventh daily flights from Newark. The additional Newark service will allow United to offer hourly service to London in the evening, according to the carrier.
“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 SVP of international network and alliances Patrick Quayle said in a statement.
United earlier this month announced its largest transatlantic expansion in the carrier’s history.
