Planning a trip to Europe? You’ll have a new flight option from Seattle next year, thanks to Delta Air Lines which is adding daily nonstop service to London’s Heathrow Airport. 

 The new service will start on March 29, 2014. The daily Delta flight will depart Sea-Tac Airport at 6.40 p.m., arriving in London at 12.05 p.m. (the next day). From London, the flight will depart at 12:20 p.m. and arrive in Seattle at 2:40 p.m. the same day.

Delta is partners with Alaska Airlines, making it useful for Alaska frequent fliers who can use or earn miles on Delta flights. British Airways already flies non-stop between Seattle and London’s Heathrow.

Delta recently has been turning Seattle into a West Coast hub for international flights, particularly to Asia. The flying time from many Asian cities is shorter to Seattle than to San Francisco or Los Angeles, allowing Delta to use smaller, more efficient planes and have quicker turn-arounds.

 Delta currently flies nonstop from Seattle to Paris, Amsterdam and the Asian cities of Beijing, Osaka, Shanghai, Tokyo-Nartia and Tokyo-Haneda.
