The West Coast is getting a new nonstop flight to London in 2020. British Airways will expand to its 27th U.S. city with nonstop service from Portland to London starting in June. Late summer intro fares are available for $496 roundtrip and it's even cheaper for fall travel.

British Airways Adds Nonstop Service from Portland to London

The new nonstop service from Portland (PDX) to London (LHR) begins on June 1, 2020, and will be operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner 5 times per week on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Flights depart Portland at 6:50 pm and arrive in London at 12:15 pm the following afternoon. Flights returning to Portland depart London at 3:05 pm and arrive pack in Oregon at 4:55 pm. All times local. The flight from London to Portland clocks in at 10 hours and 20 minutes.

These flight times provide connections throughout Europe and beyond with one of the world's largest flight networks. Oregonians will now be more connected worldwide thanks to this new flight on British Airways and will be able to take advantage of lower prices overall.

The new route will compete directly with Delta and you'll likely see prices drop on all carriers. Sign up for FREE airfare alerts to find out when they do.
