Cincinnati is getting a boost from landing the nonstop service to London. The hub was the second largest in the early 2000s. Hundreds of daily flights were flown from CVG.

CVG was dropped as a hub by Delta after it merged with Northwest Airlines in 2008. Delta's nonstop to Paris was the only regular route to Europe.

The London service will give the airport a second route and a shot of prestige.

British Airways has a nonstop service from CVG to London-Heathrow, which is great news for the Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana region. Business travel, economic development, and tourism between the UK and the United States are all impacted by this flight.

The carrier has announced plans to add more flights on its existing London routes from both Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) and Portland International Airport (PDX).

Oneworld travelers might like the route as a way to travel to Europe. There were 20,000 award tickets available for one-way to London in the economy and 60,000 for business. One-way tickets on the Cincinnati-London route are available in June for 30,000 miles in economy or 57,500 miles in business.
