BA launching London to Charleston route in April

Travellers will be able to fly directly from Heathrow to the home of the iconic 1920s dance craze in South Carolina.

British Airways will begin flying directly from Heathrow to Charleston, South Carolina from 4 April 2019.

Two flights a week will take customers from Terminal 5 to the birthplace of one of the most popular dances of the ‘roaring 20s’.

The new route will take the number of US destinations the airline flies to from London next summer up to 29.

Sean Doyle, British Airways’ director of network and alliances, said: "You can’t help but get sucked in to the old-world charm of Charleston; its cobblestone streets, colourful houses and historical buildings make it a unique city."
