In an effort to enhance convenience for future travelers, US Airways has changed course on where its London-bound planes will land moving forward.

Phoenix Business Journal reported that as of Saturday, the Tempe-based airline switched all nonstop flights to London from Gatwick Airport to Heathrow Airport.

Heathrow is closer to the city of London and offers more connecting flights throughout the United Kingdom, which the airline believed makes it a more efficient hub than Gatwick.

Though there are no direct flights to London from Phoenix, the new flight will begin in Miami, stop at Charlotte and finally land in Heathrow over a span of about 19 hours.

Suzan Boda, an official with the airline, said the new plan is aimed at increasing convenience for all its customers.
