British Airways – the flag carrier and the largest airline in the United Kingdom (based on fleet size), has begun nonstop service from London to New Orleans.
Currently the airline flies the London-New Orleans route four days per week, but it has announced that starting October 30th, 2017, the service will increase to five times per week.
This new, international nonstop flight will depart from London-Heathrow Airport and fly to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, connecting New Orleans to more than 130 destinations and beyond.
This is the first time in over 20 years that New Orleans has had a direct flight to Europe.
In addition to British Airways, Condor Airlines will begin one new twice-weekly departure from Frankfurt, Germany to New Orleans on May 3rd, 2017 through October 4th, 2017.
