As of April 2019, British Airways now fly directly to the US cities of Charleston and Pittsburgh from London Heathrow Terminal 5. These will run alongside British Airways’ many other routes to the States, meaning you now have even more choice when it comes to choosing your dream transatlantic destination.
Fly direct to Charleston and soak up all the historical charms of South Carolina’s oldest and biggest city. Sample the local seafood delights, stroll through the enchanting cobblestone streets, marvel at the historic architectural styles or head a little further afield to explore the area’s marvellous marshlands.
If you’re looking for the best way to explore all of this vibrant destination’s plethora of fascinating sights, including The Four Corners of Law, then why not opt for one of the guided tours? Outside of the city, don’t miss the Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, which runs one of the oldest working plantations in the USA and also featured in the hit film - The Notebook. Or for the ultimate way to relax, pack a picnic and head to beautiful Folly Beach for some fun in the sun.
During the summer months, British Airways will fly twice a week to Charleston, South Carolina
British Airways is the first airline to connect London to Pennsylvania’s coolest city. Sitting at the convergence of three rivers, with no fewer than 446 photogenic bridges, Pittsburgh has gone from former steel city to full-on hipster heaven.
‘The Burgh’ is a thoroughly modern city, with a streak of sporting successes, new restaurants opening in its trendy South Side neighbourhood, and Google, Facebook and Uber all competing for office space. It’s little wonder that Millennials are flocking here hoping to make ‘the Burgh’ their new home. Visit the fabulous museums, including one dedicated to Andy Warhol, explore the wealth of quirky attractions, and if you get the chance, be sure to catch a Steelers’ game at Heinz Field.
British Airways fly four times a week to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
