About I Fly Nonstop

The “I Fly Nonstop” campaign represents one example of the International Air Service Committee’s innovative strategies to generate support for the nonstop flights to Tokyo, London and Amsterdam, as well as connections throughout Asia and Europe to major business centers and tourism destinations.

Become part of the “I Fly Nonstop” team and help get the message out to the community that the best way to keep the nonstop Delta flights is to fly the nonstop Delta flights.

About The International Air Service Committee

The International Air Service Committee (IASC) was established by Portland and Vancouver’s mayors to build and maintain nonstop international air service between Portland International Airport (PDX) and Europe and Asia. IASC is led by the Port of Portland and a team of business and community leaders from Oregon and Southwestern Washington to help recruit and maintain nonstop international air service to PDX. International air service is highly important as it provides access to global markets and represents a huge economic impact to the region in terms of jobs, tax revenues and investment.

History

Since Portland International Airport offered passengers its first nonstop international air service in 1981 on Western Airlines to Vancouver BC, PDX has seen many changes.

Over the years, the mix of carriers and routes have varied, but nonstop international air service at PDX has remained important to both local travelers and visitors, helping them get to their international business meetings faster, and giving them more time to enjoy their vacations around the world.

While many changes have occurred over the years, today PDX offers nonstop international air service to Tokyo, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Reykjavik, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Guadalajara, helping serve the travel needs of locals and visitors alike.
