CVG partners with British Airways, gets a direct flight to London, England starting in June 2023.
British Airways and the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) have announced a new direct route between the Cincinnati region and London Heathrow, which will begin operating in 2023.
Starting on June 5, 2023, this will be the only direct flight between the UK and all of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, creating incredible new opportunities for tourism and business across both sides of the pond. The flight will operate five times per week in the summer season and four in the winter.
London is the capital city of the United Kingdom, and is known for its rich history, double-decker buses, and red phone booths. The city is home to many famous landmarks including Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Tower Bridge. Travelers from Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana can explore other cities throughout England or connect to other parts of Europe and beyond.
"This is the first time we’ve flown this route, and we can’t wait to connect two cities which both have so much to offer," said Neil Chernoff, Director of Networks and Alliances at British Airways."Not only will this open up these destinations to customers on each side of the Atlantic, but it will also improve connectivity between the Cincinnati region, Europe and beyond, with opportunities to connect to our wider network via London.
"British Airways’ nonstop service from CVG to London-Heathrow is an all-around win for the Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana region," said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG. "The United Kingdom, and London specifically, is the largest unserved international destination from our region. Travelers can fly direct to London or access many of the 46 countries and 113 destinations that British Airways flies to outside of the Americas."
Customers traveling to London will travel in comfort on a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner with a choice of three cabins – World Traveler (economy), World Traveler Plus (premium economy) and, Club World (business).
Tickets are now on sale for the route with introductory fares from $665. For more information visit www.ba.com.
