British Airways is launching a third daily flight from Newark Liberty International Airport to London Heathrow.
The carrier said the addition, which begins on 6 June, is to support the “return of business travel in 2022.”
BA said the new frequency, alongside its partnership with American Airlines, offers the most extensive network from the New York area to London with 15 daily departures this summer.
The flight will operate daily on a Boeing 777-200 with 48 Club World seats, 40 World Traveller Plus seats and 184 World Traveller seats. The service will also include BA’s Club Suite experience.
Neil Chernoff, director of networks and alliances, British Airways, 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 to start their following day more refreshed.
“Including American Airlines, we offer the largest and most convenient schedules from the New York area to London and are the only airline or alliance that offers service to and from both major New York and London airports. As we continue to co-locate our New York and London operations with American Airlines, we will provide a more seamless journey for our customers allowing them to access our combined 15 daily departures.”
