Flights and cruises

The Port of Seattle owns and operates Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, a premier Pacific coast gateway, with non-stop service from 24 international cities and connecting flights to 72 U.S. cities. Services at the Port’s two downtown cruise ship terminals make Seattle the preferred choice for Alaska or Pacific Northwest cruises on the USA west coast, via seven international cruise lines. Year-round service to Victoria BC and the San Juan Islands is also available. The Port’s tourism mission, in partnership with Visit Seattle, is to encourage international visitors to Fly & Drive and Cruise & Stay. Be sure to check out PortSeattle.org
With non-stop daily flights from London on British Airways and Delta Air Lines (and from March 2017 with Virgin Atlantic), Seattle is Britain’s most direct gateway to the Pacific Northwest. Icelandair and other airlines offer one-stop flights from airports around the UK and Ireland.
