Travel Tip: New Airline Routes

Share on: Share on Google+

With summer travel season around the corner, the airlines are paying attention to where people want to go. So here’s what’s going on with the airline routes this season.

Ever heard of Porter Airlines? Probably not. It’s a small, regional service in Canada. But it has great service and just launched a route between Toronto and Washington, DC. And there’s also seasonal service to Mont Tremblant, Myrtle Beach, and Burlington, Vermont.

Best of all, it flies into Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport instead of Pearson, which gets you much closer to the city center.

In Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, the town of Loreto was only accessible by limited service on Alaskan Airlines. But a new resort there has partnered up with Cal Jet Air to offer weekly charter flights from Los Angeles. After all, they can’t get customers without airlift

And then there’s one of the coolest seasonal routes out there: Icelandair from Minneapolis/St. Paul Washington, D.C., Orlando Sanford, Halifax,┬á and Toronto.

The best thing about this? You can fly Icelandair to cities all over Europe, and stop for free in Rekjavik for a few days. It’s one of the best secret deals out there.
