British Airways is to increase the number of flights it operates to Nashville next summer, with two extra weekly routes.

There will now be a daily service between Heathrow and the Tennessee hub, which is BA’s fastest new route to move to a daily service in ten years.

A Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner able to carry 214 passengers will be used to operate the route, with 154 seats in economy, 25 in premium economy and 35 in business.

Sean Doyle, British Airways’ director of network and alliances, 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.”

This summer, British Airways and American Airlines have operated up to 67 daily flights between the UK and the US as part of their transatlantic joint business.
