United Expands Service to London Heathrow from Denver International Airport

Home

DENVER – Aug. 23, 2019 –United Airlines announced the airline will offer year-round service between Denver International Airport (DEN) and London Heathrow (LHR) beginning Nov. 1, 2019. United began summer seasonal service to London Heathrow in March 2018.

“We are delighted that United has seen such success with nonstop service to London-Heathrow and will offer the flights year-round beginning this winter,” said DEN CEO Kim Day. “The increased capacity is the reflection of both strong local demand as well as the growth of connection opportunities through United’s hub in Denver.”

The Denver-London market has grown nearly 60% since 2017 and close to 700 people per day travel between the two cities. London ranks as Denver’s largest long-haul market, and second-largest international market – only travel to Cancun, Mexico, generates more demand.

With this announcement, DEN now has year-round, nonstop service to London on two airlines, United and British Airways. United’s new service will increase DEN’s nonstop winter capacity to Europe by six percent and increase nonstop winter flight departures to an average of 36 per week.

United will operate the DEN-LHR flight six days per week November through March and daily during rest of the year on the 219-seat Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. United’s additional long-haul service from DEN includes year-round, nonstop service to Frankfurt, Germany (FRA) and Tokyo-Narita, Japan (NRT).


Denver International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. DEN is the primary economic engine for the state of Colorado, generating more than $36 billion for the region annually.
