The British Airways flight between Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport and London's Heathrow Airport will operate on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday of this week and will return to daily service starting Saturday, Norman Y. Menta San Jose International Airport said in a release.
"As the world continues to open up again, we are excited to welcome British Airways back to San José and Silicon Valley," John Aitken SJC Director of Aviation said in a release. "The resumption of nonstop service connecting San José and London's Heathrow Airport represents a significant milestone in our recovery and restores an important link for business and leisure travelers on both sides of the Atlantic."
To celebrate the flight's return passengers experienced custom giveaways, balloons and special photo-ops with a London backdrop, the release said.
"We can't wait to welcome our customers back on board our San José flights, and we are honored to be playing our part in reuniting families and friends with their loved ones after such a long time apart," Marie Hilditch, British Airways' Head of North America sales said.
The nonstop flight returns as the United States drops its COVID-19 testing requirement for travelers entering the country.
