From April 2019, British Airways will raise the frequency between London Heathrow and Nashville, from four times a week to daily.

Business travellers can choose from four departures a week, and the launch marks the first direct route between London and the Pennsylvanian city. Africa will be upgraded with a new route to Durban. Osaka will be served four times a week, which increases the number of daily flights between London and Japan to 32 per week due to their Joined Business.
