Transport for the United Kingdom has signed up to fly the first United Airlines flights to the United State.
Transport Minister Chris Grayling said the move would help to boost the UK economy.
He said the flights would be part of the Government’s efforts to bring down travel costs to the UK.
He added that there would be no extra cost for passengers on board.
The airline will fly to Las Vegas from Birmingham and return to London.
The first flights were due to begin in January, and they are expected to bring the total number of flights in the UK from the US to over 10,000 a year.
There are currently about 10,500 US flights in Britain every day.
The airline said it would also carry about 100,000 passengers to and from the United Arab Emirates, with most arriving in the US.
The flights will be used to bring some of the thousands of passengers to the US, Mr Grayling added.
The new airline, AirBnb, was created in March by former entrepreneur and businesswoman Jessica Green.
It is expected to start operations in the summer.
