British Airways has declared to get going with direct flights from London Heathrow to Pittsburgh starting from 2nd April 2019. B787-8 aircraft will offer four-times weekly service and is available in three classes namely economy, premium economy, and business class. The London Heathrow-Pittsburgh route will be the 26th US destination of the airline.
Previously, the airline operated its services via Washington from 13th May 1986 till June 1993 until it planned to take off its services to Gatwick. Later on, it started providing a daily service till 31 October 1999 due to which flyers willing to travel from London to Pittsburgh were required to connect via New York JFK, Philadelphia or Chicago.
Sean Doyle, Director of Network and Alliances of British Airways stated, ‘We take immense pride to add Pittsburgh into our global network which spans to over 250 destinations. More precisely, with the introduction of Wi-Fi services primarily on our long-haul carriers is enabling us to build more good customer experiences both on the ground and in the air. We are very proud as a peacock to carry the symbol for supreme quality transatlantic travel.’
The flight will leave from Heathrow at around 17:00 and will reach Pittsburgh at 20:15 on the very same day. Furthermore, the same return flight will depart Pittsburgh at nearly 21:50 and return Heathrow at 10:25 the next day. The carrier mainly operates on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
