British Airways is launching a new, daytime flight from Newark Liberty International Airport to London Heathrow – its third daily flight from Newark to London, to support the return of business travel in 2022.

The additional flight, which launches on 6 June, will depart at 7.55am from Newark – a convenient option for travelers wishing to spend an extra night in the New York area before departing on business or leisure, or for those travelers who wish to arrive in the evening in London to spend the night at home or their hotel. The flight will depart Heathrow at 7.10pm, also allowing travelers to spend the entire day in London before flying to Newark.

The airline is also resuming its ‘daylight’ service from JFK in March, which proves to be a convenient option particularly valued by its business travelers, and customers who prefer to travel during the day.

The additional Newark flight offers added convenience for customers living in Manhattan, Staten Island and New Jersey.

With this new frequency, British Airways along with its joint business partner American Airlines will offer the most extensive network from the New York area to London with 15 daily departures this summer, including 11 daily flights from JFK to Heathrow and 1 daily flight from JFK to Gatwick.  From April 2022, all flights to JFK and EWR from Heathrow on BA and AA will depart out of BA’s Terminal 5, and by next year, all British Airways flights in JFK will depart from AA’s home in Terminal 8.

The flight will operate daily on a Boeing 777-200 with 48 Club World seats, 40 World Traveller Plus seats, and 184 World Traveller seats.
