British Airways has announced that year-round nonstop service between Pittsburgh International Airport and London Heathrow Airport will resume June 3, 2022, restarting a key route for the region.
The flight will operate once again four days a week with service on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays departing from London Heathrow at 4:45 p.m. and landing in Pittsburgh at 7:50 p.m. The return flight will depart Pittsburgh at 9:50 p.m., arriving in London at 10:10 a.m. the following day.
After a 20-year hiatus, British Airways resumed service to Pittsburgh in 2019. The flight operated successfully for a year before pandemic-related travel restrictions led to the flight’s suspension in 2020. The flight is expected to generate more than $50 million annually to the Pittsburgh regional economy.
