There isn’t that much to do in Fargo, North Dakota, but we’ve been a couple of times and always enjoyed our visits. That’s why we were excited to learn that Frontier is coming to the city with new nonstop options over to Denver. The flights will run three times per week, and Frontier will be sending Airbus 319s back and forth between the two spots.
The planes will have some of those extra legroom seats—for a fee—and even access to plenty of live television. We’re sure that residents of the area are already planning trips with Denver as a layover on their way to somewhere a little warmer. All the flying fun starts just in time for the holidays, as the planes will do their thing beginning on November 16.
We knew that United had something in store for residents of the Triangle down in North Carolina, and this week the new flights finally took to the skies. This week a new nonstop between Raleigh-Durham International Airport and San Francisco started doing its thing thanks to United.
Boeing 737s are doing the heavy lifting across the country, as the flights leave Raleigh around 7am local time on the way across the country. Local officials are hoping that this will boost business for companies located in the two areas, but we’re thinking that it would just make for an awesome long weekend. If you ask us, no connections just means more time to explore.
Thailand is about to get a little bit more accessible, as it sounds like Emirates is getting ready to send some of their jets over to Phuket. The new flights are set to debut on December 10, and this will be the second destination—after Bangkok—for Emirates to and from Thailand.
The flights will run each and every day of the week, so there’s no need for along weekend when you can stay as long as you’d like. Three-class planes will do the flying between Phuket and Dubai, so if you’ve got some extra cash burning a hole in your pocket there’s always the option to upgrade yourself into first class.
