LONDON – British Airways is launching a new, daytime flight from Newark Liberty International Airport to London Heathrow as their third daily flight on the route. The flight will operate daily on a Boeing 777-200.
This extra route has been added to support the return of business travel in 2022. The additional flight, which will be launched on the 6th of June, will depart at 07:55 from Newark and return from Heathrow at 19:10, allowing travelers to spend the entire day in London before having to return.
The airline is also resuming its “daylight” service from JFK in March, which is particularly valued by business travelers.
With this new frequency, British Airways, together with their alliance partner American Airlines, will be offering the most extensive network from the New York area to London with 15 daily departures this summer, including 11 daily flights to JFK from Heathrow and 1 daily flight to JFK from Gatwick.
Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Director of Networks and Alliances said: “We are pleased to be launching our third daily flight from Newark, to further strengthen our New York – London schedule. The convenient morning departure is popular with customers who might prefer having an extra night in New York or arriving in London in the evening.”
From April 2022, all flights to JFK and EWR from Heathrow on BA and AA will depart out of BA’s Terminal 5, and by next year, all British Airways flights in JFK will depart from AA’s home in Terminal 8.
