United Airlines is marking 10 years of its operations at London Heathrow Terminal 2, since becoming the first airline to operate a flight at The Queen’s Terminal on June 4 2014.

On that day,  United flight UA958 from Chicago O’Hare, operated with a Boeing 767-300 aircraft, arrived at gate B38 at 05.49 local time.

Since United’s move to Terminal 2, the airline has carried over 16.5 million customers and for Summer 2024 is operating 20 flights a day from London Heathrow to seven of its U.S. hubs: New York/Newark, Washington D.C., Chicago O’Hare, Houston, Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Progressively, 22 of the airline’s Star Alliance partners moved to Terminal 2, enabling faster, more convenient connections for United customers to and from flights operated by its partners.

“We are proud to mark 10 years of flying between Terminal 2, London Heathrow, one of the most important airports in United’s global network, and the U.S.,” said Karolien De Hertogh, Director Sales UK and Ireland, United Airlines.

“For over 30 years we have provided a critical link between London and the U.S., maintaining service throughout the pandemic and strategically growing our schedule to keep our customers in these key global business centres connected. We expect another busy summer for international travel in 2024 and are proud to offer our customers in the UK extensive travel options and the possibility to connect via our U.S. hubs to over 220 destinations across the Americas.”
