Save money (and time): Introducing 18 new direct routes to Britain

Tuesday 04 April 2017

From rooftop butterfly gardens to full-service day spas, there are some pretty cool ways to pass the time in airports these days. But as any jetsetter can attest, the biggest and best perk an airline can offer isn’t an ultra-luxurious airport lounge, it’s a direct flight. And it seems the airlines agree—which is why several top providers have started offering even more nonstop routes to Britain from a variety of US cities. Intrigued? Here’s a sampling of the newest direct flights to pop onto our radar.
