The airline said one-way fares will start from 129 pounds (US$254.9 million; EUR189.9 million) including taxes and charges. It will offer economy and premium economy services with designated seating and a meal service.
Flights will leave London Gatwick every lunchtime, arriving in New York in the early afternoon, the company said. Return flights will leave New York in the early evening, landing at London Gatwick at around 6 a.m. the following morning.
