Is it true, British Airways flies to Austin Texas? Yes. British Airways is set to become the first carrier to provide a non-stop flight between Austin and London next year.
Flights from Austin-Bergstrom International to Heathrow will commence in early March 2014. The launch comes at the perfect time for visitors looking to travel out to the famous South by SouthWest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin which takes place from 7-16 March. Using a Boeing 787, BA will fly to the Texan capital five times a week which will then increase to a daily service later in the year.
The 787 will be fitted with the latest Club World business cabin and World Traveller Plus premium economy seating in addition to British Airways’ new style economy cabin.
The route will be BA’s third in the state, as it already flies to Houston and Dallas / Fort Worth.
