British Airways is to introduce a daily service from Gatwick to New York JFK airport from 27 October.
The airline already operates 55 flights a week from Heathrow to the US city, with the new flights bringing the weekly total to 62.
BA general manager network planning, Lynne Embleton said: "The new Gatwick service will give our customers even more choice when flying between London and New York. Not only do we already have an extensive schedule from Heathrow to both JFK and Newark but next year we will launch business-only flights from London City."
The airline will move a Boeing 777 plane from Heathrow to service the new flights.
Four classes will be offered on the route - First, Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller. BA plan to cut their daily service from Manchester airport to JFK in October.
