Emirates, Air Canada and Volaris Lead This Week's New Routes News

August 9, 2013 at 9:00 AM | by | Comments (0)

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 Canada:
They are already flying nonstop between Montreal and San Francisco, but things are going so well that they’re now going to do it all year long. Air Canada just announced that this city pair will be more than just a seasonal option beginning this November, as Airbus A319s will make the flight throughout the entire year. The flight times are even pretty nice too, as they don’t even stick you with an overnight flight. No redeyes on the way back from California, as the flights depart San Francisco around 8am and arrive in Montreal around 4:30pm—all times local.

· Interjet:
There was some new airplane action this week to and from Mexico City, as Interjet is on the move once again. They’re bringing the low cost carrier thing to New York City, as earlier this week nonstop flights started between Mexico City and New York-JFK. There’s plenty of competition on flights between these two cities from carriers like Aeromexico and Delta, but let’s hope that a little friendly competition brings airfare down. If JFK isn’t where you want to go, Interjet also flies nonstop to spots like Miami and San Antonio.

American Airlines, Alaska Airlines and Interjet are Ready with This Week's New Routes

November 2, 2012 at 8:09 AM | by | Comments (0)

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.

· Alaska Airlines:
The paint is hardly dry on the salmon-thirty-salmon, but it’s already time for Alaska Airlines to pick a new city to serve. This week it sounds like the carrier has its eyes on Salt Lake City, as they’re planning nonstop flights over to Utah from Seattle.

The new flights are not doing their thing just yet, but the fun is scheduled to begin on April 4 of next year. It sounds like things will run a couple times per week, and to celebrate the new options one-way fares can be had for as little as $99. Just be sure to get those credit card digits ready, as the special offer only runs for bookings completed by November 8.

· JetBlue:
Despite the disturbance of Hurricane Sandy earlier in the week, JetBlue fleet's is back on turf in time to begin their nonstop from JFK to Cartagena, Colombia TODAY (November 2). Believe it or not, this is the only straight route from the New York area to Cartagena, the cultural capital of Colombia. On an A320, the flight is scheduled to leave JFK at 8:25am and land at CTG at after noon, three times a week (Tues, Fri, Sat), meaning breakfast at the airport and lunch on the Caribbean. JetBlue already flies to Bogota from both Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.

This Week Brings New Cities and Destinations to JetBlue, Spirit and More

September 14, 2012 at 9:23 AM | by | Comments (0)

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.

· JetBlue:
Usually when JetBlue is planning to arrive in a new city there’s some rumors and news preceding the big announcement, but this week we were kind of caught off guard. JetBlue just announced that Charleston, South Carolina will be their latest destination, and the flying fun will be done to cities like Boston and New York. Flights will head back and forth twice per day between New York, and just once per day to and from Boston. All the new options start up on February 28 of next year, and all the flying fun will be done thanks to a little assistance from some of JetBlue’s Embraer E190s. Oh—and of course—the live television and snacks will be free.

· Spirit Airlines:
Hopefully you weren’t too attached to Spirit Airlines and their service to and from Washington-National Airport, as it looks like the planes and pilots are on the move. Spirit is flying out of town in favor of utilizing the somewhat nearby Baltimore/Washington International Airport. Apparently the airline wasn’t too pleased with the ability to expand and grow at an airport that kind of has rules against growth and expansion. They’re already added a new option over to Dallas/Fort Worth, and that joins Ft. Lauderdale as their other nonstop option. You know the deal when it comes to Spirit Airlines, so just watch those fees!

It's Interjet, Turkish Airlines and Delta Leading This Week's New Route News

August 3, 2012 at 9:46 AM | by | Comment (1)

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.

· Turkish Airlines:
Just like everyone else we’d love to spend a few days—or a few months—over in the Maldives, but getting there isn’t exactly as easy as hopping aboard a ferry. There are plenty of flights to reach the island destination, but a new option from Turkish Airlines might just make it a little bit more accessible.

Beginning on November 24, the airline will start nonstop flights between Istanbul and Male. The flights will run five times per week, and all the flying fun will be completed thanks to the carrier’s fleet of Airbus A330s. Tickets haven’t gone on sale as of yet, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see the fares loaded into the system within the next few days or weeks. If money is an issue—no problem—just keep saving those frequent flyer miles, as Turkish Airlines is a member of Star Alliance.

· Delta:
It’s been a little bit of time since Delta announced their big expansion plans for New York-LaGuardia, but recently they kind of completed the launch of some of their newest flights to and form the Big Apple. The flights are a mix between mainline Delta jets and some regional carriers, but anyway look slice it you’ll get to where you need to go. Some of the most recently added options include spots like Charlotte, Cleveland, Denver, Charlottesville, Houston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, as well as Halifax, Ottawa, and Montreal.

All in all, Delta is planning to spend a cool $160 million—give or take a couple bucks—on upgrades and improvements over at LaGuardia. That means your time on the ground might just be a little less crummy and a little more pleasant, especially with a visit to the beer garden.

Mexico's Interjet Crosses the Border for New Flights to the US

November 8, 2011 at 12:12 PM | by | Comment (1)

There’s a new airline getting ready to land in the United States, and if all goes well it’ll save you a few bucks when trying to head south of the border. Interjet is a low-cost carrier based in Mexico, but they’re now planning to expand outside of the country into our backyard.

Their first flights will be a nonstop option between San Antonio and Mexico City, and the plan is to start flying back and forth beginning at the start of December. Flights will run each day of the week with a couple on weekdays, but there will only be single flights doing their thing over the weekend. Obviously the airline is excited about their expansion, so they’re even offering round-trip flights for around $250 to celebrate.

MIA welcomes three new airlines this fall, just in time for winter getaways. Of course, you can already fly to a gazillion places from Miami International but these new airlines bring cheaper fares to the mix for destinations in the Bahamas and Mexico.

Sun Air International Airlines will begin 18 weekly flights from MIA to five destinations in the Bahamas: Bimini, Marsh Harbour, Treasure Cay and new routes to Andros Town and Governors Harbour. Great news for anyone hoping to avoid the cruise crowds in Nassau and hit up some of the smaller, more remote and luxurious islands and private resorts.

Mexican LCCs: Interjet Wants to Go International

Where: Toluca, Mexico
August 8, 2008 at 9:35 AM | by | Comments (0)

While Mexican low cost carrier Avolar might be experiencing a few difficulties in staying financially afloat, it looks like fellow budget airline Interjet is having no such problems.

Interjet flies between base Toluca and over a dozen Mexican cities--but since Toluca's about an hour from Mexico City, Interjet is pretty pleased to have done a deal with Aero California for their rights to landing slots at Mexico City's huge airport.

Added to that, Interjet's also planning to fly into California and Texas once they get permissions worked out. We're hoping by then they get their website working in English too so we'll be able to book us some seats without relying on our very poor Spanish.
