BA will operate the route with Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft, with fares leading in from £600.
Flights will depart Heathrow Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 5pm, arriving 8.15pm local time.
Return flights will depart Pittsburgh at 9.50pm arriving into Heathrow at 10.25am the following day.
Sean Doyle, BA director of network and alliances, said he was extremely pleased to add Pittsburgh to BA’s global network of 250 destinations.
