A new route to the Tennessee capital Nashville, known as Music City, is being launched by British Airways in May with a five-a-week service from Heathrow Terminal 5. BA will be the only airline flying direct between Europe and the destination.
It takes the number of US destinations the airline flies to from London in summer 2018 to 26, and the number of daily flights offered by BA and American Airlines as part of their transatlantic joint business to 67 a day.
The route will be operated by a three-class Boeing B787-8 with World Traveller, World Traveller Plus and Club World cabins on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Director of network and alliances Sean Doyle said: “Nashville is a dynamic city with one of the fastest growing economies in the US, so we are confident the route will be a big hit with British business travellers as well as tourists in the UK and US.”
BA is also increasing services to Philadelphia and Phoenix from a daily service to ten flights a week from Heathrow, and will also be introducing the Airbus A380 on one of the two daily flights to Chicago.
