Posted 1 May 2018 · Add Comment

The only direct route between Europe and Nashville launches this week (4th May) when British Airways starts flying between Heathrow and Music City.

The new route follows the launch of New Orleans in March 2017 and Nashville will become the 26th US city the airline flies to.

From this summer British Airways and American Airlines will operate up to 67 daily flights, as part of their transatlantic joint business.

 

BA223 will depart from London Heathrow Terminal 5 at 3.45pm local time and arrive into Nashville International Airport at 6.50pm central time. BA222 will depart Nashville at 8.20pm, arriving into London at 10.30am the next day.



To celebrate the new four-a-week direct service between London and Nashville the airline welcomed country music star and Nashville native, Stella Parton (above), to Heathrows.
 
Stella, who has lived in Nashville for 50 years and whose birthday is on 4th May, was photographed on board a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner as the airline’s newest fleet will serve the capital of Tennessee.
 
Stella Parton, who hails from one of America’s most legendary music families, said: "On behalf of all of the Nashville natives we are so excited to welcome a British invasion! Nashville is so much more than just a music town, it’s growing, it’s happening and we want people to come and see what fantastic things we have going on. I’ve been lucky enough to tour the UK many times so I can’t wait to be able to fly direct to London with no stop-over.”
