Book Atlanta flights

Atlanta’s skyline may already be familiar to you, thanks to its starring role in TV shows like The Walking Dead, Stranger Things and the series named after the city itself. If it is, it’ll be no surprise that Georgia’s capital is a cultural powerhouse.

Fly to Atlanta with British Airways for a taste of Georgian hospitality. Divided up by its electic neighbourhoods, the city’s mix of towering buildings and green spaces have birthed a contemporary art scene, a line-up of world-famous hip-hop musicans and a diverse range of restaurants. Then there’s Atlanta’s importance during the Civil Rights movement – activist Martin Luther King, Jr. was born here. You can visit the National Historical Park named in his honour, and see the house he was born in. If you’re a history buff, don’t miss the Atlanta History Center for exhibitions on the likes of the American Civil War and early train travel in Georgia. See all this and more when you book your flight to Atlanta.

Atlanta flight FAQs

How long is a flight to Atlanta?

You can fly from London to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in around nine hours.

Which airports does British Airways fly to Atlanta from?

You can fly to Atlanta with British Airways from London Heathrow.

What’s the cheapest month to fly to Atlanta?

Steer clear of summer if you’re visiting Atlanta on a budget – this is the most popular time of year for visitors to the city. Prices are usually lower in winter as those heading to the USA for festive activities choose cities like New York, while those seeking the sun flock to Florida. The easiest way to find the cheapest flights is to use our low fare finder.

When’s the best time to visit Atlanta?

Summer is a great time to head to Atlanta for outdoor festivals, concerts and activities, so for an action-packed schedule, visit from May to August. If you’re not a fan of the heat, you might prefer to take your trip during the spring. There are still lots of events taking place, but temperatures haven’t reached sweltering levels yet.

Is Atlanta cheap to visit?

You can make your trip to Atlanta fit whatever budget you’re working with. There are easy ways to save a few dollars, from buying a pass that gets you into a list of attractions for one set price to using the city’s public transport networks to get around. You can hop on a bus, train or streetcar to get from A to B. There are also accommodation options at a range of price points, and you’re in with a good chance of making a saving if you book early. If you’re planning to rent a car while you’re away, you could also look for cheaper hotels outside what’s locally known as the Perimeter – the loop marked by Interstate 285 – and drive into the city.

Is it easy to get around Atlanta?

You can hop in a taxi from Atlanta’s airport to the downtown area, which takes around 20 minutes in light traffic. A cheaper option is to use MARTA, the city’s public transport system. A train downtown takes about 15 minutes.
