BA to launch Nashville route
BRITISH AIRWAYS WILL INTRODUCE a five-times weekly service from London Heathrow to Nashville from May next year.
The B787-8 route will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Flight BA223 will depart T5 at 1545 and arrive at 1850, with return leg BA222 leaving Nashville at 2025 and landing at 1030 the next day.
The airline will also boost its Heathrow services to Philadelphia and Phoenix from daily to ten flights a week from spring 2018, and will place the A380 on one of its two daily Chicago flights next May.
Closer to home, BA is launching new routes from London City to Paris, Prague and Reykjavik. From October, its Heathrow services to Paris Orly will be transferred to London City. There will be three daily weekday flights to Orly and one a day at weekends.
The carrier will operate six flights a week year-round to Prague (every day except on Saturdays). Reykjavik will be a twice-weekly winter-only route (Thursdays and Sundays), replacing flights to Granada in Spain, which will resume as a summer-only service next year. Flights will operate on twoclass Embraer jets.
BA’s summer Manchester-London City route will resume on December 15, with a southbound service on Sundays and northbound on Fridays. ba.com
