United Airlines has announced plans to expand its global route network with a new, non-stop service between Boston Logan International Airport and London Heathrow.

This new service builds upon United’s growing presence in London and provides customers on the east coast with another convenient option to get to London.

United plans to operate its premium Boeing 767-300ER aircraft on the route, with 46 United Polaris Business Class and 22 United Premium Plus seats.

The aircraft features the highest proportion of premium seats on any widebody aircraft operated by a US carrier between London and the United States.

“We are thrilled to offer travelers a convenient, non-stop option between Boston and London with this addition to our global network,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of international network and alliances.

“We will continue to monitor the demand recovery and travel restrictions as we finalise a start date for this service later in 2021.”

Tickets will be available for purchase in the coming weeks.


United has provided service to London Heathrow for nearly 30 years and over the course of the pandemic has maintained continuous service between the US and London.

Looking ahead, Boston will be United’s 19th daily flight between the United States and London Heathrow.
