Last week we shared some of the seasonal summer routes that Delta was planning in and out of New York-JFK, but this week it’s all about the planes that are departing from Atlanta. If you live pretty much anywhere in the United States you can probably fly Delta into Atlanta, so a connection to destinations beyond should be no problem. June 1 brings nonstop flights to Copenhagen, Prague, and Venice. Those sound pretty good to us, but there is still one more as June 3 is the day that Athens arrives as an option—opa!
· Air Canada:
We’ve been hot on this little story for quite some time, so we couldn’t let the main event pass without at least a little reminder. This weekend is when the battle for Billy Bishop heats up, as after a several year hiatus, Air Canada is returning to Toronto’s smaller—and more convenient—City Airport. The new flights will begin on Sunday and head between Toronto and Montreal only, as they’re hoping that businessmen and businesswoman will be quick to hop aboard for the short flight. We like a little competition, but we love us some Porter Airlines.
We mentioned this back in February, but in case you forgot we thought we’d remind you—after all, who doesn’t want to head off to Bermuda for a little rest and relaxation the summer? AirTran is now flying to Bermuda from Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport—they started things on April 7. If you’d prefer to connect through Atlanta they have you covered as well, but you’ll have to wait until May 26 before these flights start up. Just remember your shorts!
