United ups London

Chicago based United Airlines is to offer 22 flights per day from Heathrow by Spring 2022.

London was the most booked international destination for United’s business customers in October 2021 and the airline expects this trend to continue into 2022

New for next Spring is Boston the airline pointing out it will be the only US carrier to offer non-stop service between London and the top seven US business centres.

“For nearly 30 years, United has provided a critical link between the US and London, maintaining service throughout the pandemic and strategically growing our schedule to keep our customers in these key global business centres connected,” said Patrick Quayle, Senior Vice President of International Network and Alliances at United. “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.”

These new flights build on United’s largest-ever trans-Atlantic expansion announced earlier last  month. United currently operates a total of seven flights from Heathrow to the US – two daily flights to New York/Newark and Washington D.C. and one daily flight to Chicago, Houston and San Francisco. In December 2021, service will increase to ten daily flights, with additional flights to New York/Newark and Chicago.
