British Airways (BA/BAW) is launching flights from London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL) to Cincinnati (CVG/KCVG) from June 2023.

The airline had been teasing for a few weeks about a new North American destination, but this can now be confirmed as a service to the city in Ohio state operating five times per week.

Using the flight numbers BAW121 outbound and BAW120, a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner will operate the route.

Cincinnati is known for its 19th-century architecture, including the famous Findlay Market. It is also home to Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden making it a great short break destination or part of a two-centre holiday.

Neil Chernoff, Director of Networks and Alliances at British Airways, said: “This is the first time we’ve flown this route, and we can’t wait to connect two cities which both have so much to offer. Not only will this open up these destinations to customers on each side of the Atlantic, but it will also improve connectivity between the Cincinnati region, Europe and beyond, with opportunities to connect to our wider network via London.”

Candace McGraw, chief executive officer of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) said: British Airways’ nonstop service from CVG to London-Heathrow is an all-around win for the Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana region. The economic impact of this transatlantic flight is exponential for business travel, economic development, and tourism between the UK and our area of the United States. We look forward to a strong partnership with our new friends across the pond for many years to come.”

The city will become the 27th North American destination served by British Airways from the UK.
