· American Airlines:
There’s all kinds of reasons not to visit Mexico right now, but there are way more reasons to head south of the border—and American Airlines wants to help you get there. The super comfortable Embraer regional jets—kidding—will be utilized on a couple new routes between Dallas-Ft. Worth and Mazatlan International Airport and Morelia International Airport. The flights started up earlier this month and run every day of the week. This brings American Airlines to a total of 18 different destinations coming and going from Mexico each week.
· Spirit Airlines:
With the hopes of getting a whole bunch of $5 bills at check-in it’s only natural that Spirit Airlines would want to add even more flights. They’re getting pretty busy at Chicago-O’Hare, as the airline is planning to add five new destinations with eleven new flight options each and every day. As always buyer beware when it comes to flying with Spirit, but if you need to get to Boston, Dallas, New York-LaGuardia, Detroit, or Orlando they might just be what you’re looking for. Expect the flights to start between August and December of this year, and be on the lookout for those—with a catch of course—$9 fares.
We knew Continental was planning to send planes back and forth to Haiti beginning this summer, and the time is pretty much upon us. Beginning July 1 the other half of the new United will send some of its planes back and forth each day of the week thanks to a little assistance from their fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft. This new flight option to and from Newark and Port-au-Prince should definitely help out the area, as it can link those looking to provide a little assistance to the country that still is in a little bit of need
