United Airlines ramps up flights as UK reopens to Americans

As the UK reopens to US travellers, United Airlines will offer more than 40 weekly flights across the Atlantic.

In August, United will have six daily flights between the U.S. and London, including a second daily flight from Washington, D.C. and is increasing service from Houston to daily.

United is also launching new nonstop service between Boston and London.

It comes after the announcement that England will welcome fully vaccinated travellers from the US beginning 2 August.

Customers traveling to England must be fully vaccinated in the US and must take a test before departure as well as a PCR test within the first two days of arrival.

Passengers vaccinated in the US will also need to complete a passenger locator form prior to traveling to England and provide proof of US residency.

"This is yet another major milestone in recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic with the opening of one of the most important markets from the U.S." said Patrick Quayle, VP of International Network and Alliances at United.

"United has demonstrated that we can operate flights between the U.S. and England safely and we are eager to help rebuild these economies."

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

In August, it is increasing its service from Houston to London from five times weekly to daily and adding a second daily flight from Washington, D.C.

United will continue operating daily flights to London from Chicago, New York/Newark and San Francisco.

The airline plans to continue offering these six daily flights in September
