Sean Doyle, BA’s director of Network and Alliances, said: “You can’t help but get sucked into the Old World charm of Charleston: cobblestone streets, colourful houses and historical buildings make it a unique city. Recently we launched flights to Nashville and New Orleans, and earlier this year announced a route to Pittsburgh. Travelling to the States is as popular as ever, so we’re pleased to be adding this city to our extensive global network and giving customers even more choice of destinations.”

The Preveza flights will operate on Wednesday and Sunday from May 26 through to September 29. Bastia will operate every Sunday from May 25 to September 28.

Doyle added: “We’re always developing our leisure offering and are committed to giving customers more choice of destinations at competitively low prices, so we’re pleased to be adding two more spots to our summer schedule.” ABTAmag.com
