PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Delta Air Lines announced Tuesday that the company will be offering direct flights from Portland International Airport to London’s Heathrow Airport in 2017.

The Port of Portland said the nonstop service will begin in May.

This is the Portland’s first and only direct flight to the United Kingdom.

The direct flights will be offered seasonally and will be available to travelers four days a week from May 26 to Oct 29, according to Delta.

Delta said in a release that the direct flight will be useful for travelers in both locations.

Home to four Fortune 1000 companies, Portland's growing economy outpaces the U.S. average, and London service will complement Delta's existing long-haul international service to Amsterdam and Tokyo for Portland's business customers. Portland is also a popular tourist destination for travelers from Europe."

Delta partner Virgin Atlantic will also be replacing Delta’s current flight from Seattle to London in March 2017.
