British Airways & American Airlines

USA Routes

New Route to portland, oregon

  • British Airways will soon become the first airline to offer a year-round direct flight from UK to Portland, Oregon
  • Easily connect from Cork, Dublin or Shannon
  • This non-stop flight from London makes getting to the Pacific Northwest from Europe comfortable and straighforward
  • From June 1, 2020, the airline will launch a five-per-week service to the city from Heathrow Terminal 5
  • Flights to Portland will depart on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and the route will be operated by one of British Airways’ newest aircraft, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner


About Portland:

Oregon's largest city, Portland sits in the shadows of the impressive, snowy Mount Hood. This friendly city is well-known for its coffee houses, microbreweries, theatre, music and art scene. The food here is fantastic, with eateries representing diverse cuisines including the likes of ramen, dumplings, sushi, tacos, mezze, stews and much, much more.

Stroll in the beautiful Japanese garden- founded in the 60's as a symbol of healing after WWII- or spend some time at the zoo in Washington Park. Walk the miles of incredible wilderness trails that loop around the city and Mount Hood. Or, in typical quirky Portland fashion, visit the world's smallest dedicated park- the 24 inch diameter Mills End Park. 

Portland's also a fantastic entrance to the Pacific Nortwest Corridor. High-speed rail connects Portland with Seattle and Vancouver. Or, rent a car and make your way down the coastline through Northern California to San Francisco and Los Angeles.

About Dallas:

The ninth most-populous city in the US, Dallas is the cultural and commercial hub of the region. After the railroad was constructed in 1873, Dallas grew rapidly and now has a rich history rooted in oil production, farming and ranching. But it's not all oilfields and cattle- the arrival of banks, insurance companies and a variety of other corporations after WWII has made it a vital centre of money, power and politics.

With such a rich history, there is no shortage of places to visit. Take a tour at the infamous Texas School Book Depository, from which Oswald took aim and assassinated John F. Kennedy. The museum houses artifacts from that fateful event, including a replica of the rifle found at the scene, Oswald's wedding ring and Jack Ruby's hat.

Opened in 1903, the Dallas Museum of Art is home to artifacts from the ancient Americas, Egypt, Rome and Greece. The collection also holds several pieces by Monet and Pollock. Art lovers will also enjoy the Nasher Sculpture Center, where works by Degas, Matisse, Picasso, Ernst and Warhol are displayed outdoors in tree-lined grounds.

The most recognisable building in Dallas, the Reunion Tower's distinctive sphere shape stands out on the skyline. Take in the views from the obervation deck, or go for dinner in the revolving 360-degree restaurant.

Other highlights worth visiting include the George W. Bush Presidential Center, Dallas World Aquarium (with jellyfish, turtles, stingrays, sharks, rare seadragons,toucans, sloths, poison dart frogs, geckos, chameleons and crocodiles), HAAS Moro Museum (with over 200 cycles spanning 12 decades) and the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium.
