British Airways
The mighty commercial carrier of the United Kingdom is one airline that intends to expand its network rapidly. The airline threw a pleasant surprise for Austin residents by announcing the launch of London-Austin route in March 2014. It plans to operate Boeing 787 Dreamliner between these cities. This will be the carrier’s first trans-Atlantic flight to the Texan capital.
