British Airways (BA) is following sister airline Aer Lingus in flying to Ohio.
BA will officially start its new London Heathrow to Cincinnati route on Monday (June 5). It will operate five flights per week in the summer months and four per week in winter.
BA also said it will offer multiple connections from Dublin, Belfast, Shannon and Cork. It will be the only UK operator flying non-stop between London and the US states of Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.
The move follows close on the heels of Aer Lingus – both Aer Lingus and BA are owned by IAG, which also owns Spanish carriers Iberia, Vueling and Air Europa – launching its new Dublin-Cleveland, Ohio route last month.
That expansion of its North American route network saw Aer Lingus become the first European airline to offer a direct link between Europe and Cleveland.
