British Airways touches down in Portland, Oregon

British Airways made this announcement:

On June 3, Portland, Oregon became the newest destination on the British Airways route map as flight BA0267 touched down at Portland International Airport (PDX) at 5.05 pm local time.

Creating the only direct route between London (Heathrow) and Oregon, the inaugural flight received a warm local welcome as it taxied to the gate.  The brand-new route will operate five times a week on Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner with three cabins for customers to choose from: Club (business), World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) and World Traveller (economy).  The return flight to London Heathrow departed at 6.55pm local time – just as the UK enjoys a 4-day-weekend to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Captain, Meredith Bell operated the inaugural BA0267.  Having been a pilot for British Airways for 30 years, she has flown customers to numerous destinations.  Portland has a personal connection as her daughter is currently studying at Reed College.

British Airways customers will also benefit from our relationship with Alaska Airlines, offering seamless onward connections beyond Portland. British Airways customers can book onto Alaska-operated flights to 15 destinations from PDX, enabling them to access the UK with only one stop. Furthermore, our loyalty program members can earn and redeem miles on these flights.

Flights from Portland to London Heathrow will run on Friday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The route will be operated by one of British Airways’ newest aircraft, the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
