British Airways is the first to resume nonstop service between Europe and San Diego since shutting down the flights in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The flights will happen three times weekly all year-round on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, according to British Airways.
“Our global city needs efficient global connections and I’m grateful to British Airways for resuming service to London which will also provide access to other European countries,” said Kimberly Becker, who leads San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. “San Diego’s business community has been asking when this flight would return and after more than a year and a half, we welcome them back.
“This flight also allows families to reunite and tourists to visit America’s Finest City. Regaining service to London on British Airways will provide our region with an economic boost that contributes to our recovery.”
The flights take around 11 hours depending on which direction you're headed. According to FOX5, on Thursday morning (October 14) prices for roundtrip flights one month out in November ranged from $700 to close to $1,400.
