Book flights to Seattle

Discover the dramatic landscapes and big-city charms of Seattle, the Pacific Northwest’s biggest and brightest city. This global tech hub is adored by craft beer and coffee connoisseurs alike, but there’s a wealth of treasures lying in wait in this lush green corner of the USA.

Fly direct from London to Seattle with British Airways to begin your Washington State adventure. The city’s diverse neighbourhoods are compact and walkable, so you can cover plenty of ground in a day. Start your morning the Seattle way, with freshly brewed coffee, then hop on the Seattle Centre Monorail, which stops at the Museum of Pop Culture. It’s an unmissable spot for Nirvana fans given the city’s connection to the ‘90s grunge movement. Then, if the weather’s clear, head round the corner to the Space Needle for unrivalled mountain and city vistas. Once you’re back on earth, go downtown to the world-famous Pike Place Market to shop for eclectic artisanal wares, eat fresh oysters and watch the world go by. Book your holiday to Seattle today.

Seattle flight FAQs

How long is a flight to Seattle?

A flight from London to Seattle takes just under 10 hours.

What’s the cheapest month to fly to Seattle?

It's generally cheaper to fly between October and May, outside of the busier summer months.

Is Seattle cheap to visit?

Most visitors head to Seattle in peak summertime when the weather’s fine and dry, but the hotel prices can be more expensive. You may get better value for money if you travel in spring or autumn – just don’t forget your umbrella.

Although entry prices can add up if you’re visiting the city’s many attractions, Seattle’s proximity to impressive natural wonders means there’s much to enjoy that’s free. There’s no charge to explore the city’s botanical gardens at Washington Park Arboretum, or for picnicking in Carkeek Park’s 220 acres of forest, meadows, wetlands and beaches with priceless views over Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. For sky-high city views with a coffee – and crucially, no entrance fees – head to Starbucks on the 40th floor of the Columbia Center.

Is it easy to get around Seattle?

Once you land at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, known locally as SeaTac, you’re rewarded with a straightforward journey into the city centre. There are plenty of taxis queueing at the airport, or it’s easy enough to jump onto the Link light rail which reaches downtown Seattle in under 40 minutes. Once you’re in the city, the main attractions are walkable or accessible by the Link light rail, buses or Streetcar trams.

You can also hire a car with British Airways if you want to see more of what Seattle and Washington State has to offer. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.

Why visit Seattle?

With lush evergreen forests – the reason it’s named the emerald city – plus picture-perfect peaks, lakes, beaches and a slick cityscape, Seattle’s wholesome good looks are reason enough to make the journey. You’re spoilt for choice with several national and state parks to explore in the wider region, including North Cascades, which is free to visit and home to more than 300 glaciers, and Mount Ranier National Park, where you can hike through the ancient forests and subalpine wildflower meadows.
