There’s all kinds of new routes becoming available on Delta over the next few months, so we’ll try to touch upon a few of them. Raleigh-Durham seems to be the big winner as they’re getting nonstop service to Providence, Washington, DC—these start on April 1—as well as Los Angeles. They’ve had the LAX option before, but it always seems to go away, but hopefully this time it will stick around after it starts on May 1. The Nation’s Capital—via Reagan National Airport—is also getting some new service to Charleston, South Carolina, New Orleans, and Providence. Nothing too groundbreaking, but it’s not too shabby either.
· Qatar Airways:
Just another connection to half way around the world thanks to the folks at Qatar Airways. The airline is bringing new service between Doha and Montreal beginning this June. They’ll be using Boeing 777 aircraft to link the two cities three times a week at first. Let’s just hope that the flight frequency sees a little bit of a boost in time for the 2022 World Cup, but if not, it’s probably not that big of a deal. We’re thinking hockey is a little more important than soccer to those departing Montreal.
· Air Canada:
Canada seems to be this week’s pick when it comes to new route options. Air Canada is getting ready for the warmer weather to hit, as they prepare some new options for this summer. They’re adding almost a half a million more seats out of the country this summer with daily service to Copenhagen, Madrid, Dublin, and Santiago, Chile from Montreal. Air Canada is also increasing the frequency of flights between Montreal and Barcelona and Athens. Sounds good to us, and just in time to start planning a summer escape to Europe.
