Azores Airlines (the flag carrier of the Azores Islands, which are part of Portugal) will launch a route from Ponta Delgada (the largest city in the Azores) to the British island of Bermuda in the West Atlantic on the 6th of June next year. The service will only occur on a seasonal basis, in the summer, and will finish on September the 19th. It will be operated twice a day by an Airbus A321neo (until Azores Airlines’ A321neo fleet is replaced by A321LRs [the long range version of the A321neo], which are preferable for covering such distances). The main reason for the creation of this route is due to the large Portugese population in Bermuda. The route will allow these people to go back to mainland Portugal via the Azores, where they will be able to stay for several days, free of charge, as the costs will have been included in the flight. Happy New Year to everyone and we’ll be back in 2021 for more aviation news! 31st of December 2020.
