New Flight Routes from the US to Europe in 2022

DALLAS – Many airlines are opening up new routes from the United States to Europe this year. These new direct routes offer more opportunities for travelers to cross the ocean for less and with fewer changes.

These are the newest flight routes you can take, with some extra advice on why you should take any particular flight.

Boston to London Heathrow

The route is particularly attractive for those looking to get the most out of a trip to London. As it leaves in the evening and lands at 6:30 the next day in the morning. This gives you an entire day to explore the city. Passengers can use this time to squeeze an extra day in or alternatively use it to add in a day trip to see top destinations like Stonehenge or Oxford. 

The route back from London to Boston leaves at 8:25 in the morning and lands at 11:21 pm local time, giving you a comfortable window to get to the airport and back home.

How Long Does the Route Take? 

It takes around 7 hours and 13 minutes from Boston to London Heathrow and 7 hours and 56 minutes from London to Boston. The time difference is due to the direction of the winds over the Atlantic. On the way to Heathrow, the winds actually help increase the speed of the flight, whereas, on the way back, they are slowing it down.

Increase in Trans-Atlantic Services 

Many airlines are increasing the frequency of their services as well to cope with the post-pandemic travel boom. This means more options not only for direct flyers but for those with layovers as well.
