The winter weather is closer than you can imagine, and that’s especially the case over in ski resort town of Telluride. Allegiant is getting ready to fly to the Colorado city, and the plan is to head right into Telluride Montrose Regional Airport beginning this winter. Nonstop flights will be available from both Oakland and Phoenix-Mesa, so the flights should be pretty convenient for those passengers with ski goggles and mittens in their carry-on bags. Flights will do their thing a couple times a week—looks like Wednesdays and Saturdays—and will run between December 15 and April 3.
· Air Arabia Maroc:
Get ready to check out Morocco, as things are getting a little bit easier thanks to Air Arabia Maroc. The carrier is planning to link London-Gatwick with both Casablanca and Tangier. The flights are set to start heading back and forth starting on October 28, and there will be five flights per week between the new city pairs. It sounds like Airbus A320s will do the heavy lifting between the United Kingdom and Morocco, and you might even enjoy a 32” seat pitch. It seems that Air Arabia Maroc is especially proud of their slightly roomier coach cabin.

So this might not exactly be a new route, but All Nippon Airways—or ANA to their friends—is putting down the foundation for several more new options. Apparently the carrier is pretty darn happy with what they’ve seen so far aboard the Boeing 787, so they just called up Boeing and ordered some more planes. They’re ordering eleven new Boeing 787-9s, but these slightly longer models are still far from delivery. However, we’re sure that all these new planes will only allow for some new route announcements in the near future.
