NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Nashville International Airport will begin to offer direct flights to London’s Heathrow airport beginning in May 2018.

The British Airways flights were announced during a joint press conference with Governor Bill Haslam and Nashville Mayor Megan Barry. The brand new flight will be operated with a state-of-the-art Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

The new fuel-efficient aircraft boasts smooth ride technology which reduces the effects of turbulence, along with cabin air that is less dry, helping to minimize jet lag and making for a more comfortable journey, according to a British Airways press release.
