Emirates, Delta, and Icelandair Have This Month's New Route News

March 14, 2014 at 9:13 AM | by | ()

Sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of all the new route announcements that come our way, so we’ve complied a little bit of a rundown below. As long as you can afford the fares, this should definitely help add to your passport stamp collection.

· Emirates:
Those who call Massachusetts home just got a new nonstop option this week, as Emirates is now doing its thing back and forth out of Boston’s Logan Airport. Boeing 777-200LRs will be the planes taking to the skies, as the passengers, pilots, and personnel do their thing between Dubai and Boston. Emirates will operate the flights each and every day of the week, so no need to balance your schedule to score a ride with them. For those that are interested in the specifics it’s flight 238 that departs Boston at around 11pm, and it arrives over in Dubai at around 7pm the next day, all times local.

· JetBlue:
Here’s one to add to the warm weather map, as JetBlue just announced destination number 86. This time the carrier is making the short trip between New York-JFK and Cape Cod, as they’ll be doing the nonstop thing right into Hyannis, Massachusetts. This is nonstop number 64 out of New York-JFK, and should be a great way to beat the traffic during the summer. Understandably it’s a seasonal thing with flights each and every day of the week between June 26 and September 9.

· 'Ohana by Hawaiian:
We’ve mentioned that Hawaiian Airlines had their eyes on a smaller turboprop subsidiary, and now it’s time for the ‘Ohana to start flying between the islands. The first destination to score service is Moloka‘i, as nonstop flights are now an option to and from Honolulu. Just a few more days and destination number two becomes an option. That’s when twice daily service between Honolulu and Lāna’i becomes an option on March 18.

· Delta:
With plenty of room for planes and people now that United moved out of town, the airport over in Cleveland is looking for some new tenants. Delta has already agreed to move on in, as they’re doing the nonstop thing between Cleveland and Indianapolis as well as Raleigh-Durham. The new nonstops take to the skies on June 5, and it will be those comfy-cozy regional jets doing all of the flying. So be sure to go ahead and stretch those legs at the gate before boarding.

· Icelandair:
Last but not least this week is Icelandair, as the carrier has just initiated some nonstop flights between two chilly cities. Nonstop flights are now an option between Edmonton—in Canada—and Reykjavik—in Iceland. Unfortunately there are no wide-bodied airliners here, as it will just be Boeing 757s as the route crosses the Atlantic four times weekly. This is destination number four for the carrier up in Canada, and they don’t face any true competition on this route. That means expect to pay a premium if you’re looking to celebrate spring break in Iceland.
