On 3 June 2022, British Airways will launch their first year-round, nonstop flight from London to Portland, Oregon. The new service will run five days a week from London Heathrow (LHR) to Portland International Airport (PDX). The service was originally due to start 1 June 2020 but was delayed due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
Fares start from £499 based on return fare in World Traveller (economy) and flights to Portland will depart on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday during the summer and in the winter. Flights will be operated on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
Located in the Pacific Northwest and surrounded by spectacular natural beauty, Portland offers visitors a creative journey through its eclectic arts, music, culinary and outdoor scenes, all set against the majestic backdrop of Mt. Hood. Reinforced with a thriving maker community and a passion for sustainability, the city has an urban buzz waiting to be explored through every season. In addition to its acclaimed international food scene, Portland – also known as the City of Roses – is home to more than 200 parks and gardens, vibrant neighbourhoods full of independent art and boutiques, not-to-be-missed attractions including Powell’s City of Books – the largest independent bookstore in the world spanning an entire block – and a dynamic events calendar with craft beer festivals taking place throughout the year.
The state of Oregon boasts dramatic scenery to explore – from the coast to the mountains, valleys and high desert – while cities and towns offer bountiful culinary and cultural experiences. With diverse landscapes ranging from volcanic mountains to crystal clear lakes to evergreen forests, Oregon offers the adventurous traveller endless outdoor recreation opportunities. Bucket list stops include Crater Lake National Park (the deepest lake in the U.S.), the Columbia River Gorge with dozens of waterfalls to explore, Cannon Beach (famous for the iconic Haystack Rock) and the High Desert Museum bringing together regional wildlife, culture and art pieces to promote North America’s heritage. After all that exploring, visitors can refuel with world-class refreshments from the state’s bountiful wineries, craft breweries and micro-distilleries and enjoy delectable cuisine from locally sourced produce across the state.
