United Airlines will launch a daily nonstop route from Boston Logan to London Heathrow this year, assuming travel restrictions diminish and demand materialises.

The Chicago-based carrier will operate Boeing 767-300ER aircraft for the flights.

“We will continue to monitor the demand recovery and travel restrictions as we finalise a start date for this service later in 2021,” United’s vice-president of international network and alliances Patrick Quayle states.

The new flight would be United’s nineteenth daily flight connecting the USA with Heathrow, the airline says.

British Airways and Virgin Atlantic Airways are currently operating Boston-Heathrow routes, Cirium schedules data shows.
