For years, London Heathrow has been the most popular direct destination from Nuremberg and has not been served for a long time. The last direct connection from Nuremberg to Heathrow was more than 20 years ago (in the 1999/2000 winter timetable). The airline now provides a permanent, non-stop connection between the airport and Europe's largest hub.
This means that all three major airline alliances are represented in Nuremberg for the first time: Star Alliance, SkyTeam and – now new – Oneworld Alliance. The carrier will initially fly four times a week from Nuremberg. From May, the frequencies will then be increased to six weekly flights. Intercontinental connections include Santiago de Chile, São Paulo and Dubai. As one of the most important foreign markets for the Nuremberg tourist region, British Airways will optimize connections to the relevant metropolises in the USA from the 2022/2023 winter flight schedule. This means that Nuremberg is even better connected to New York (John F. Kennedy International Airport), Boston, Chicago and other top destinations in the United States.
"British Airways has recognized the potential of the metropolitan region with its internationally networked companies, the strong trade fair and the high volume of incoming traffic, for example from the USA, and will use it," says Airport Managing Director Michael Hupe. This increases the number of hub connections to eight.
