Exploring North America with British Airways

19 February 2020

When you’re planning your transatlantic travels, look no further than British Airways. Flying to 31 cities across Canada, mainland USA and the Pacific Island state of Hawaii, British Airways can carry you to any North American adventure you desire, whether that’s beachside sophistication in the west, fast-paced city excursions in the east or wildlife spotting up in the Rockies.


On the USA’s southern Pacific coastline is the state of California where glitz and glamour can be found in abundance alongside picturesque natural beauty. With British Airways you’ll have a choice of four cities to fly in to, with each presenting a different face of California. Will you go to Los Angeles to experience the Glamour of Hollywood and the Bohemian coastal neighbourhoods of Venice Beach? Or will you go to San Diego to discover the rich Mexican heritage? Or maybe you’ll head further north to San Jose in the rolling hills of Silicon Valley or to the melting pot of global cultures that is San Francisco?


With perennial sunshine, golden sandy beaches, sub-tropical wildlife and endless family fun, the sunshine state of Florida is the ultimate sun-soaked getaway. For families looking for thrills and relaxation in equal measure there’s the  exhilarating theme parks of Orlando and the beautifully soft beaches of Tampa. Or, if you’re looking for some culture, explore the Latino districts of Miami and embark on a road trip through the Florida Quays.

With flights to Miami, Orlando and Tampa, you can really get the true essence of Florida on your next trip when you choose to fly with British Airways.  


If you fancy a taste of Cowboy Country and dream of gazing out over miles of prairie land while the smell of delicious barbecue fills the air, the Lone Star State is calling your name. Likewise, if you have your heart set on exploring a glistening urban metropolis then cities like Houston, Dallas and Austin will welcome you in with open arms. With flights to each of these Cities, British Airways is well placed to set you on your way for an unforgettable Texan adventure.


Hawaii is made up of a series of paradise islands that defy belief. Steep mountain sides blanketed with dense tropical jungles sit lined by talcum powder-soft sand beaches and crystal-clear waters teeming with vibrant marine life.

With British Airways you can fly to either Lihue Airport in Kauai, Honolulu International Airport in Oahu, or Kahului Airport in Maui, following a flight change in Los Angeles or San Francisco.

City adventures

The USA is home to dazzling cities, each with its own unique attractions and stories to tell. From the Southern charm and unmistakable French influence of New Orleans and the thriving music scene of Nashville, to the effortless cool of Portland and the kaleidoscope of humankind in New York, there’s a city for everyone and British Airways can take you there from regional airports across the UK with connecting flights via Heathrow and Gatwick.


Holidaying in Canada may conjure up different images depending on who you are. For some it means surfing the waves of the Pacific Ocean or exploring the rugged beauty of the Rocky Mountains, while for others it may mean soaking up the multicultural energy in cities like Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal and enjoying the delightful treats that these cosmopolitan hubs present. 

British Airways operates flights from London to Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver, giving you the chance to experience these excellent cities or use them as a springboard to start your Canadian travels as you delve into the wider regions surrounding them.
