British Airways is seeking to establish a new transatlantic flight from London to Indianapolis, according to a report published by Airport Coordination Limited. The airline looks to begin offering flights from Heathrow Airport next summer.
Airport Coordination Limited is a United Kingdom-based company that helps coordinate flight routes for nearly 50 airports worldwide.
Indianapolis International Airport previously had a transatlantic flight to Paris through Delta Air Lines, but that flight was discontinued in March 2020 due to the pandemic.
In a statement to our partners at the Indianapolis Business Journal, the Indianapolis Airport Authority said it was looking to establish a new transatlantic flight, but did not specify what location that would include.
“IAA is in conversations with multiple airlines to restore service that was lost during the pandemic, including a transatlantic flight,” the IAA said in its statement. “At this time, Indianapolis Airport Authority is not aware of any scheduled transatlantic flights for the upcoming summer 2022 schedule.”
