New Routes for Long-Haul International Flights

U.S. airlines might be cutting back, or entirely dropping certain U.S. cities from their route networks. But for long-haul international flights, there are a number of new routes now on the schedule.

Delta now flies nonstop from Los Angeles to Tahiti. You can now fly nonstop between JFK and Auckland, New Zealand on Qantas.

Turkish Airlines, which already flies to more international destinations than any other airline in the world, flies from many U.S. cities to Istanbul. Now add Seattle to the list, and coming up, nonstop service from Denver and Detroit.

Cincinnati may have lost a lot of domestic service, but starting in June you can fly nonstop to London on British Airways. and United begins nonstop service from Newark to Malaga, Spain on May 31st.

And you can look for some low introductory airfares on these new routes as well.
