In the Big Easy, say yes to everything going. Say yes to beignets soused in café au lait. When you hear the soulful sound of a jazz band, stop to listen, when you are invited for a drink, then stay for two.
Say yes to exploring: the galleries and vintage shops, the Garden District’s quiet streets. Look up our flights to New Orleans and our holidays to New Orleans: moss-hung oaks and Southern hospitality await. Music is a part of life here and you won’t have to travel far to hear it seeping down the streets like mud in the bayou. This is the city that invented jazz, after all. Come for wild nights, but stay for the state of elegant decay afterwards- the atmospheric cemeteries, the sophisticated touch of French and Spanish influence crumbling off beautiful old buildings. Then restore yourself with the warm heartiness of a good old gumbo.
Ahead of our new flights to The Big Easy, we operated a special charter flight to the world famous Mardi Gras.
British Airways’ star-studded charter flight to New Orleans took to the skies with 180 VIP guests on board. Passengers were treated to performances from Nicole Scherzinger and YolanDa Brown. Mixologists from NOLA Group in London also shook up Louisiana inspired cocktails, bringing a taste of the Deep South to those on board.
