  • United Airlines commenced flights between Denver (DEN) and London Heathrow (LHR) on 24 March, marking a return to the route for the Star Alliance member which has not served the airport pair since October 2010. “This flight not only provides Denver and Colorado residents and businesses with more options to access London, but it also strengthens Denver’s position as a hub for transatlantic connecting passengers,” said Kim Day, CEO Denver Airport. “The UK currently ranks as Denver’s largest overseas international market, and we look forward to further market stimulation as a result of United’s new service.” As stated by Kay, this is another option for people wanting to fly between Denver and London. The 7,493-kilometre link to Heathrow is already served by British Airways daily, while Norwegian offers a low-cost option between Denver and London Gatwick, a service it currently operates three times weekly based on OAG schedules. United will utilise its 787-8s on its latest transatlantic service, a route it will operate daily. This is currently the carrier’s only direct link to Europe from its Colorado hub.
