Wheels Up: 8 Hot New Flight Routes
Every day, over a hundred thousand flights take off around the world. And while that whopping number might come as a surprise, it doesn’t mean there aren’t still new routes to add to the roster. So, we’ve rounded up some of the hottest new flights announced this fall.
Some just took off, while others you can look forward to in 2018. Ready to start planning your next adventure?
Los ángeles - Paris + Amsterdam
Delta announced that next summer (June 16, 2018) they’ll start flying customers non-stop to and from LA, Paris and Amsterdam on brand new Boeing 777-200LR’s. The airline recently gave up their LA to London flight to Virgin Atlantic. So, the new Paris and Amsterdam routes are big as they will actually be the only Delta transatlantic flights out of LAX.
Dublin - Miami
In September, Aer Lingus added Miami to their roster. The flight will make it easier than ever to get from Europe to the warm, sunny Florida beach and vice versa. In fact, it’s the only airline that runs this route.
Lisbon - Atlanta
Did you know Atlanta is the world’s busiest airport? Now, they’re adding another route directly to Lisbon, Portugal that will run once a day. Now, you can go from eating good southern cooking to scarfing down Portuguese pastries faster than ever.
London - Denver + Seattle
Norwegian recently introduced new nonstop routes between London and Denver and London and Seattle. The new route means you can head from the high shopping-streets in London right to the slopes in Colorado, or out into the hip (but just as rainy) streets of Seattle.
Singapore - Los Angeles
In October, United Airlines newest flight from Singapore to Los Angeles officially became the longest by a U.S. airline -- coming in at 18 hours long. But, we have to say, it’s going to be well worth the wait.
London - Reykjavik
This fall, British Airways launched a new route between London City Airport and Reykjavik, Iceland. Over the past few years, the chilly, northern country has become a hotspot for travelers looking to indulge in the great outdoors -- so we don’t really see this route as a surprise.
