JetBlue, Delta, and Even More New Routes This Week

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· JetBlue:
More flights from Boston this week thanks to the airline with free television and plenty of in-flight snacks. JetBlue continues to bring planes back and forth between Logan International and the rest of the Western Hemisphere. The first new flight will link Boston with Portland, Oregon with one daily nonstop flight—just remember to bring a blanket as the return flight is a redeye. The other new route will link Massachusetts with the Dominican Republic. These flights will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. All the new flights start on June 17, so get your credit card ready.

· Strategic Airlines:
Not just another new route, but this is kind of a whole new airline. Strategic Airlines is looking to start service between Down Under and Thailand beginning later this month. Flights will begin on February 22 and will run twice a week on nonstop routes between both Melbourne and Brisbane to Phuket. Other carriers like Jetstar and V Australia are already flying this route, so expect some serious competition and low fares.

· Delta:
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.
