It's Air China, JetBlue and Etihad with This Week's Newest Routes

January 18, 2013 at 8:33 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.

· Air China:
The government paperwork is still in the mail, but if things go as planned then Air China will be touching down over in Houston. The plan is to link Houston with Beijing as frequently as four times per week, as Air China wants to start heading back and forth beginning on July 11. Boeing 777-300s will do the heavy lifting across the globe, but there’s no doubt that it’s going to be a long haul to get where you’re headed. Air China is buddies with United thanks to the Star Alliance, so we’re pretty sure that Houston is a great place to help domestic flyers hook up with their new Air China connection.

· Etihad:
If you’ve had enough of Europe then give Etihad a call, as they want to get you from Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi once you’re done doing your thing over in the Netherlands. The plan is to start the new flights just in time for the busy summer travel season, as May 15 is the day that they’ve circled on their calendars. Airbus A330s look to be the planes of choice for this new option, and Etihad will team up with KLM to market the flight as a codeshare option too.
