The Most Lucrative Airline Route in the World is Finally Reopening

Read Time:53 Seconds

November 7. Big Ben to Lady Liberty was a $1 billion connection for British Airways, as the UK airline made that much in 2019 flying between London’s Heathrow and New York’s JFK international airports.

Today, the route reopens to Europeans, and all US airports are open to international travelers. Airlines are expecting a surge of fully vaccinated visitors and vacation goers, so expect to hear a little cockney alongside those endangered New York accents once again.

When the US government announced in September that its borders would soon open to vaccinated travelers from 33 countries — China, Brazil, South Africa, and the UK among them — coronavirus numbers were still in flux in several regions thanks to the driving force that is the Delta variant.

So there was no telling whether demand for intercontinental travel would snap, crackle, or pop. But in the last few weeks, it has become abundantly clear that the world missed America. Airlines — which are collectively set to lose more than $200 billion due to the pandemic — now stand to cash in.
