British Airways will become the only airline to offer a direct flight from the UK to Pittsburgh from April 2019.
The airline has announced that it will launch a year-round four-per-week service to the Pennsylvanian city from Heathrow.
The new route will take the number of US destinations the airline flies to from London up to 26, and the number of daily flights offered by British Airways and American Airlines as part of their transatlantic joint business up to 67 per day.
The route will be operated by one of BA's Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners.
The new flights will run on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday with the BA0171 departing from London Heathrow at 5.00pm and landing into Pittsburgh at 8.15pm, while the BA0170 will leave Pittsburgh at 9.50pm, arriving into London at 10.25am the following day.
