- IAD (Washington DC)
- BOS (Boston)
- ORD (Chicago)
- DTW (Detroit)*
- MIA (Miami)
- ATL (Atlanta)*

While there may be NO direct flights from DTW (Detroit), (ATL) Atlanta, SEA (Seattle) or SFO (San Francisco) to the UK at this time, there are flights with connections to the UK.
In Florida the only approved airport currently operating direct commercial flights to the United Kingdom is
