Howdy, Heathrow!

Starting next spring, London-bound Texans will no longer have to land someplace else to fly into Heathrow Airport.

British Airways’ five daily nonstop London flights from Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth will move from remote Gatwick Airport to Heathrow in March 2008. Heathrow is a relatively short train ride from Central London and worldwide connections abound there.

The shift comes as a result of the “Open Skies” accord, which substantially deregulates air travel between the U.S. and Europe.
