British Airways Launches New Direct Service to Cincinnati

If you've been dreaming of spreading your wings to Cincinnati from London, the time has come. British Airways has just announced that's it'll launch a new direct route from London Heathrow to the Cincinnati, starting from 5 June, 2023.

The service will operate five times a week, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays during the summer of 2023, and 4 times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays in winter.

Flights to Cincinnati will be operated using a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner with a choice of three cabins: World Traveller (economy), World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and Club World (business).

Cincinnati will become the 27th US destination served directly from London by British Airways, which offers 300 transatlantic flights per week, the most by any UK carrier.

When launched, this will be the only direct flight between the UK and all of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, creating incredible new opportunities for tourism and business across both sides of the pond. The flight will operate five times per week in the summer season and four in the winter.

Resting along the banks of the Ohio River, the Cincinnati region spans portions of three states – Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana – offering access to a wide range of US destinations on offer for work and fun.

Affectionately nicknamed Cincy or the Queen City, the area is home to world-class museums, more than 50 breweries, the USA’s largest Oktoberfest, three major sports teams spanning American football, basketball and football, and the Krohn Conservatory, an Art Deco greenhouse featuring 3,500 plant species from all over the world.

It’s renowned for its Cincinnati Chili, handmade ice cream and beer, whilst acting as a gateway to Northern Kentucky and the famed Bourbon Trail, a playground for bourbon-lovers. In addition, Kentucky is also synonymous with gorgeous rolling hills and bluegrass music.

Elsewhere in the US, British Airways has recently announced additional flights to Portland, Oregon which will become daily for Summer 2023, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which will increase to six flights per week.

The airline is also adding an eighth daily flight to New York’s JFK airport in Summer 2023, and preparing to move into the airport’s Terminal 8, where it will co-locate with joint business partner American Airlines after a substantial redevelopment.

Through the Atlantic Joint Business (AJB) this new route will offer customers even more exciting travel connection at competitive prices - on one ticket. The AJB brings together the flight network of Aer Lingus, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia and LEVEL operating in Europe and Israel, and American Airlines in the USA.

Tickets are now on sale for the route with return fares from £499. For more information visit
