|FLY FROM THE UK TO MEMPHIS, DIRECT
January 07, 2016 Brian Quinn / Elvis Express Radio
Heathrow Airport here in the UK has promised direct links to more exotic and far-flung destinations as it entered a New Year battle to win backing for a third runway. Its campaign
has been largely business-focused as it seeks to beat Gatwick for government consent to expand.
But many of the routes, planned if another runway is built in west London, would also make it easier for Britons to visit more capitals, heritage sites and other tourist attractions.
Sadly though, if they get the go ahead for the 3rd runway, customers will have to wait until 2030 for more direct flights. UK Elvis fans would be able to jump on a plane from west
London to Memphis, Tennessee, to pay a visit to the King's former home, Graceland.
More than 600,000 people a year visit the mansion, making it the second most-visited house in America after the White House. Tennessee-bound travellers could also fly direct to
its capital, Nashville, to experience its country music venues, visit Civil War battle sites and try its famous hot chicken dishes
