British Airways is to return to the city of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania on Friday 3 June 2022.

BA launched a new route from London Heathrow to Pittsburgh in 2019 after an absence of nearly 20 years. The city, along with a number of long haul routes, was suspended in 2020 due to COVID-19.

The route has now been put back on sale. The return of Pittsburgh was expected. BA had advised it aims to reinstate much of its pre-COVID-19 routes to North America by 2022.

BA has today also relaunched London Heathrow – Portland. The airline has also relaunched summer seasonal flights from Gatwick to New York JFK and suspended Gatwick – Las Vegas.

Flights from London to Pittsburgh will operate four times weekly from London Heathrow Terminal 5. These will be operated by Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft in a three class, Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller, configuration.

As ever, schedules remain subject to change due to changing restrictions on travel to and from the UK. You can keep up to date with BA route network changes with our dedicated long haul and short haul route network pages.

Flights are on sale now at General guidance for visitors is also available from Visit Pittsburgh.

  1. Great news. That’s the best airport from which to get to Frank Lloyd Wright’s ‘Falling Water’, and Pittsburgh is a very nice little city by all accounts.
