On Thursday (June 2, 2022), British Airways announced the launch of inaugural direct service between London Heathrow (LHR) and Portland, Oregon (PDX) in the U.S., with flight BA0267 departing on Friday, June 3, 2022. The added service expands the carrier’s 2022 U.S. network to 26 American cities. Service to Portland will operate five times weekly on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Additionally, British Airways will resume service between London and San Jose, California on June 13th, while also launching daytime service between New York-Newark (EWR) and London from June 6th, in support of the return of business travel. As demand continues to increase, British Airways will also resume double-decker Airbus A380 service between London and the U.S. on select routes this summer.

In Thursday’s announcement, British Airways’ Director of Networks and Alliances, Neil Chernoff, said,


“This summer British Airways will be flying from 26 US cities to London and we’re very excited to be adding Portland to our list of transatlantic destinations. Not only are we the only airline to offer direct flights from Portland to London, but this new route also opens a wide variety of connections for our customers. Through Alaska Airlines, our oneworld partner, British Airways will offer codeshare connections to several destinations operated by Alaska Airlines from Portland.”


British Airways will also resume direct year-round service between Pittsburgh and London on Friday (June 3rd) with four weekly flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Additionally, from July 1st, travelers will have the opportunity to experience Airbus A380 service between London Heathrow and Dallas/Fort Worth. The extraordinary aircraft can accommodate 469 guests in four classes, including a choice of First, Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller cabins. British Airways has 12 of the double-decker super jumbos in their fleet.
