When we look at the Cincinnati region, we see a vibrant part of the U.S. with a great mix of business and leisure travelers who have long asked for more international services and global connectivity, which is what made it so attractive to us and why I’m confident this new route will be a success“, said Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ director of networks and alliances.

The last non-stop connection between London and Cincinnati was on August 30, 2009 with weekly Delta service on Boeing 767-300ERs operated from Gatwick Airport.
