United Airlines has announced plans to introduce a daily direct flight between Heathrow and Boston Logan International later this year.

A Boeing 767-300ER, with 46 business class and 22 ‘Premium Plus’ seats, will operate the service, the transatlantic carrier said.

Tickets will go on sale “in the coming weeks”, but United did not confirm a start date of the flights.

Outbound flights will depart Heathrow at 5pm and arrive in Boston at 7:30pm, while inbound flights will depart Boston Logan at 10pm, arriving at 9:35am the following day.

“We are thrilled to offer travellers a convenient, non-stop option between London and Boston with this addition to our global network,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of International Network and Alliances.

“We will continue to monitor the demand recovery and travel restrictions as we finalize a start date for this service later in 2021.”

United has provided service to London Heathrow for nearly 30 years and over the course of the pandemic, has maintained continuous service between London and the U.S. Looking ahead, Boston will be United’s 19th daily flight between London Heathrow and the United States.
