Nonstop flights to London took off from RDU Saturday.

American Airlines began the new international flights from RDU to Heathrow Airport. From Heathrow, it's easier to get connecting flights to the rest of Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Triangle boosters think it will attract vacationers and business travelers from those parts of the world.
