PHOENIX — British Airlines announced on Thursday that it will resume non-stop flights from Phoenix to the U.K. following a COVID-19 hiatus. 

Flights between Sky Harbor and the U.K. were halted due to the restrictions put in place by the pandemic a year and a half ago. 

Starting on Aug. 31, there will be flights available three times a week, according to a statement from Sky Harbor. 

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said in a statement: 

“British Airways has been a key partner to the city of Phoenix and Sky Harbor International Airport for more than 20 years. This flight will contribute to the growth of our economy while providing travelers with a nonstop connection to Europe. We are proud of the world-class service we are able to provide Phoenicians and visitors from all around the world.”

According to the statement, the partnership between British Airlines and Sky Harbor is projected to bring $3 billion to the Arizona economy each year.
