REGION, STATE CELEBRATE 'NEW DAY' WITH BRITISH AIRWAYS ANNOUNCEMENT
When the British settled along the Ashley River, passengers aboard sailing vessels anticipated
months-long journeys across the Atlantic. Fast forward almost 350 years, and a new direct route between the United Kingdom and Charleston will cut that time to nine hours or less. On Thursday, British Airways announced plans for new, nonstop air service between Charleston and London’s Heathrow Airport.
