Azores Airlines resumes the summer operation on the route from Ponta Delgada to Providence, USA, from next Friday. This is a very important route for the Azorean community on the east coast of the USA because the airport is located in the state of Rhode Island, in the cities where Azorean migrants reside, preferring a few minutes to Providence than the one of greater distance for Boston. SATA also offers 11 weekly flights from Boston to the islands of São Miguel and Terceira. The Providence operation will run on Fridays from 8 June to 28 September using the A321neo and A330 aircraft. “We have seats available from the summer and we have great deals for August and September,” said Azores Airlines Commercial Director Gavin Eccles. “If you have not booked yet, contact us, and if you have never been to the Azores, you do not know what you are missing out” he says. Airlines serving Providence Airport, Green Airport, include Allegiant, American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, OneJet, Southwest and United, in conjunction with the Azores Airlines seasonal service to Ponta Delgada. Azores Airlines also offers additional departures from Boston and Oakland in the United States, and Toronto and Montreal, Canada. Destinations include connecting flights to the islands, Lisbon, Porto, Madeira, the Canary Islands and Cape Verde, as well as the main European centers. The islands of the Azores are the closest point of Europe in the United States, only four hours by plane.
