Second daily flight to be added between London Heathrow and Los Angeles

United to offer 23 daily flights from London Heathrow to the U.S. in 2023

LONDON, 12 October 2022 – United Airlines today announced an increase in services between  London Heathrow and the U.S. from 22 to 23 daily frequencies, with an additional second daily flight between London Heathrow and Los Angeles, commencing 26 March 2023. 

The additional daily flight to Los Angeles builds upon United’s recent London expansion, with additional flights from London Heathrow to New York/Newark, San Francisco and Denver, as well as a new service to Boston. United offers more flights and more business class seats from New York and the west coast to London than any other U.S. carrier and next summer, all United flights to London Heathrow will offer all-aisle access United PolarisSM and United Premium PlusSM seating. “London continues to be an integral part of United’s global route network and we are  excited to announce this further expansion from London Heathrow to the U.S.,” said Bob Schumacher, United Director Sales U.K. and Ireland. “We expect another busy summer for international travel in 2023 and are proud to build on our industry-leading global network to offer our customers in the U.K. even greater travel choice and the possibility to connect via our U.S. hubs to other destinations across the Americas.” 

This further expansion at London Heathrow demonstrates United’s transatlantic leadership among U.S. airlines. Announced today, the airline’s 2023 summer schedule includes adding flights to three cities – Malaga, Spain; Stockholm, Sweden and Dubai, UAE – as well as six more flights to some of the most popular destinations in Europe: Rome, Paris, Barcelona, London, Berlin and Shannon. In total, United will fly to 37 cities in Europe, Africa, India and the Middle East next summer, more destinations than all other U.S. airlines combined. The new routes are subject to government approval.

United saw historic levels of demand for travel to Europe in the summer peak, up 20 per cent compared to 2019, and is focused on developing its network to serve continued demand strength. Along with adding new flights, United will fly nine routes it added last summer, including direct flights between New York/Newark and Nice; Denver and Munich; Boston and London Heathrow; Chicago/O’Hare and Zurich; and Chicago/O’Hare and Milan, as well as flights to four
destinations not served by any other North American airline – Amman, Jordan; Azores, Portugal;
Palma de Mallorca, Spain and Tenerife, Spain.
