When it comes to a weekend getaway over in Europe, it’s probably hard to beat heading off to Venice. Thankfully heading off to Venezia just got a little bit easier, as it sounds like easyJet is ready to head in and out of the city’s airport. The flights started heading back and for this week, as easyJet is connecting London Southend Airport with Venice on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. If that airport isn’t the most convenient for you—don’t worry—as easyJet also flies out of London-Gatwick over to Venice once a week.
· Hawaiian Airlines:
Hawaiian Airlines has been pretty darn busy when it comes to expanding their reach throughout Asia, and now it looks like they’re at it again. This time the carrier has its sights on Japan, as they’re thinking about adding a fifth destination to and from the country. The plan is to link Honolulu with Sendai beginning on June 25 and running the flights three times per week. Things are still pending government approval, but Hawaiian Airlines is already reading some of their Boeing 767s to do the flying across the Pacific. Once things take to the skies it sounds like Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays will be when the flights depart from Hawaii towards Japan.
· Alaska Airlines:
Hopefully Alaska Airlines is hard at work painting one of their planes in some snazzy new colors, but apparently they still have time to organize some new route options. This week it sounds like they decided to fly between Portland—the one in Oregon—and Fairbanks, Alaska. It’s going to be seasonal service, as the weather is just a little bit better during the summer months. Things will start heading back and forth beginning on June 9, and the flying fun will come to an end for the season on September 2. To celebrate the new service they’re even offering up some introductory airfare deals, as one-way tickets can be had for as little as $179—just be sure to book before February 16 to score the deal.
