CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A trip across the pond could be just a cab ride away if you visit Over-the-Rhine this weekend.
CVG shipped one of London’s iconic black taxi cabs across the Atlantic to promote the launch of its round-trip British Airways flight to Heathrow Airport.
The cab will be making the rounds from Washington Park up to Findlay Market from 2:30-6:30 p.m. on Saturday. [Route]

The cab was in Columbus on Friday and will be in Louisville on Sunday. A CVG spokesperson says the cab promotion is timed to coincide with the coronation weekend of King Charles III.
“British Airways’ nonstop service from CVG to London-Heathrow is an all-around win for the Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana region,” CVG Chief Executive Officer Candace McGraw said at the time. “The economic impact of this transatlantic flight is exponential for business travel, economic development and tourism between the UK and our area of the United States. We look forward to a strong partnership with our new friends across the pond for many years to come.”
