It’s not North, and it’s not fully South, though one of those two thing is in it’s name. It’s now home to a Boeing factory, where 787 Dreamliner planes are being built, and has also become a foodie capitol of the USA. There are other cities that sound like it, but there’s only one Charleston, South Carolina, and it’s British Airways newest destination in the USA.

On April 4th, 2019, British Airways will launch a twice weekly summer flight between London Heathrow Terminal 5 and Charleston, South Carolina. The new flight will be the only direct option between Europe and Charleston. The flight will depart London on Thursdays and Sundays at 17:20, arriving into the city at 21:20. The return flight from Charleston will fly on the same days, returning at 22:50 and arriving just prior to noon in the United Kingdom. Fittingly, the flight will be operated by a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner. Charleston is the home of Boeing’s 787-10 factory, and British Airways will acquire these longer aircraft versions in 2020.
