Today, American Airlines and Atlantic Joint Business (AJB) partner British Airways announced the first and only year-round service from Portland, Oregon (PDX), to London (LHR). British Airways will operate the flight, which starts on June 1.

American and its joint business partners, including Iberia and Finnair, will launch eight new transatlantic routes for summer 2020 and extend five seasonal flights beyond the summer giving travellers more ways than ever to get to Europe.
