The legendary Texan supermodel Jerry Hall, has teamed up with British Airways to add some rock’n’roll edge as the airline launches flights to Austin, the live music capital of the world.
Direct flights from London to the capital of Texas start on March 3, 2014. The new British Airways route from London is the first regular transatlantic flight to Austin and will be operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner five times a week, increasing to daily flights in May. To mark the launch, British Airways is offering a special fare on the route of £558 and £100 off a holiday for customers who book by March 12.
Famous for her Texan drawl and rock star credentials, Jerry Hall said: "My family and I travel to Austin regularly so I'm really excited that British Airways now flies there direct. I live in London but a piece of my heart will forever be in Texas.
“Austin is a wonderful city, full of culture and life and I'm delighted that there is now the opportunity for visitors to fly there in style with British Airways and to discover for themselves how wonderful Austin is."
Customers flying to Austin will benefit from the airline’s new 787 Dreamliner aircraft offering quieter cabins, improved air quality and lighting. The cabins feature stylish new interiors with state-of-the-art entertainment systems. The British Airways’ Dreamliner already flies to Newark and Toronto. Other routes starting in the summer include Hyderabad, Chengdu, Philadelphia and Calgary, as well as Chennai in October.
