New daytime Newark - Heathrow flight for British Airways

The UK's British Airways will launch a new, daytime flight from Newark Liberty International Airport to London Heathrow – its third daily flight from Newark to London, from 6th June.

This additional flight will depart at 07.55 from Newark landing back to Heathrow in the early evening with the return sector departing at 19:10. 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.

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

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.

Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Director of Networks and Alliances said: “We are pleased to be launching our third daily flight from Newark, to further strengthen our New York – London schedule. The convenient morning departure is popular with customers who might prefer having an extra night in New York or arriving in London in the evening to start their following day more refreshed.  

“Including American Airlines, we offer the largest and most convenient schedules from the New York area to London and are the only airline or alliance that offers service to and from both major New York and London airports.  As we continue to co-locate our New York and London operations with American Airlines, we will provide a more seamless journey for our customers allowing them to access our combined 15 daily departures”
