Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) will soon have a frequent, direct, non-stop flights to the historic megacity of Bangalore in India.

American Airlines has revealed that the non-stop flight will be SEA’s first non-stop connection to India, with flights beginning in October 2020.

The daily service will be the longest service from SEA by distance and will use the new generation Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. While flight dates and times are not readily available, daily service between Seattle and Bangalore will be available for purchase later this month.

An additional service with a stop in London-Heathrow will begin in March 2021, flying a Boeing 777-200.

“These new routes highlight the increasing demand from our travelers for more options,” Port of Seattle Commissioner Peter Steinbrueck said in a release. “Business and leisure travelers will be better connected to Seattle’s largest international market in London and explore new and emerging markets in India.”
