British Airways to fly daily to Nashville from next summer

British Airways is set to increase its flights to Nashville next summer operating a daily flight between Tennessee and London Heathrow Airport.

The addition of two extra weekly services means Nashville is BA fastest new route to move to a daily service in 10 years. The daily service will be operated by the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

BA director of network and alliances, Sean Doyle said: “We’re incredibly excited to be offering daily services to Nashville from our home in London, next summer.

“We only launched this route earlier this year and it is testament to the appeal of the city and all that it offers that we’re able to increase our service in such a short timeframe. Indeed, it’s the quickest new route that we’ve moved to a daily service in the last 10 years.”

When launched, Nashville was the 26th US city BA flew to. Since then, the airline has announced it will start a direct flight from Heathrow to Pittsburgh in April 2019, operating four times a week. This summer, BA and American Airlines have operated up to 67 daily flights between the UK and the US, as part of their transatlantic joint business.
