New route to the ‘Music City’
British Airways will launch a five-times-a-week service to Nashville – the ‘Music City’ – from London Heathrow this month. The route will be operated by a Boeing 787-8, with return fares in World Traveller starting from £749.
Flights will run on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, with BA223 departing from London Heathrow Terminal 5 at 3.45pm and arriving into Nashville Airport at 6.50pm, while BA222 will leave Nashville at 8.20pm, arriving into London at 10.30am the next day.
Sean Doyle, British Airways’ director of network and alliances, said: “We are excited to be adding Nashville to our global network, making us the only carrier flying non-stop between Europe and Tennessee.
With more than 160 live music venues from country and blues to jazz and rock, a rich history and heritage and a thriving food and drink scene, Nashville is a truly vibrant place for all tastes and styles.”
