Direct flights to Atlanta from the UK with British Airways mean you will find yourself in a spirited city that symbolises the old and new south in just nine hours.
The town rebuilt quickly after 1870 to become the self-titled Capital of the New South. Later, it marketed itself as ‘the next Great International City’ – a status confirmed when it hosted the 1996 Olympics, which led to the revitalisation of many neighbourhoods. The city today has an outdoorsy appeal to tourists as much as executives, with a family-friendly zoo and aquarium as well as lush Botanical Gardens featuring a 40ft walkway through the treetops.
It’s a nine-hour flight from London Heathrow to Atlanta (ATL), and convenient departure times mean you can make the most of your time, whether travelling for leisure or business.
British Airways flights to Atlanta (ATL) leave from London Heathrow (LHR) Terminal 5. You will fly on a British Airways Boeing 777 with the very latest cabins, award-winning service and benefits such as complimentary food and drinks, as well as a generous baggage allowance.
