In celebration of United's 80 years of service in Denver, the airline announced the launch of daily nonstop seasonal service between Denver International Airport (DEN) and London's Heathrow Airport (LHR).
The new Denver route, which is beginning March 24, 2018 through October 26, 2018, subject to government approval, will conveniently connect customers from nearly 80 domestic destinations to London.
"For the last 80 years, United has played an integral role in serving the Denver region and helping Denver International become an essential hub connecting business and leisure travelers to destinations around the globe," said Steve Jaquith, vice president of its Denver hub. "Our new service to London will provide more customers with convenient one-stop opportunities from markets that are served only through Denver, and we're excited to bring this new service to the Mile High City."
Jaquith was previously the managing director of the company's Denver hub, and was recently promoted to vice president.
These flights are available now for booking.
|UA 27||DEN||5:35 p.m.||LHR||9:40 a.m. +1 day|
|UA 26||LHR||11:40 a.m.||DEN||2:30 p.m.|
United Airlines has served the Denver community since 1937 and is the only airline to continuously operate in the Mile High City – operating 6.5 million flights serving more than 580 million customers during this time.
"We are so appreciative of our partnership with United Airlines and beyond excited that they continue to grow in Denver with this new service to London Heathrow beginning next March," said DEN CEO Kim Day. "These new flights will complement United's successful nonstop service to Tokyo Narita, making United the only carrier to provide both transatlantic and transpacific flights from Denver."
