Delta Air Lines will start flights from London Heathrow to the hipster paradise of Portland, Oregon, tomorrow.

The service will open up a new non-stop destination for British travellers in the United States’ Pacific North West.

The airline will fly four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays throughout the summer season.

With this route, Delta flies to eight cities in the United States non-stop from Heathrow.

“As the only airline to fly non-stop between Britain and Portland, we are offering more choice for customers during the peak travel season this summer between the UK and US,” said Dwight James, Delta senior vice president, transatlantic.

“We have been growing our network in the UK for the past three years, alongside our partner, Virgin Atlantic and this summer have up to 39 flights a day to the United States enabling people to reach every corner of the country with ease.”
