Thanks to Azores Airlines, the USA and Portugal are just a few hundred dollars away. They began March with another two promos, one from Providence to Porto for only $597 and another one from Boston to the Azores for $482. This special fare is already on sale until March 15, 2017.
If you're interested in traveling to Azores you must know that this promotion is valid for travel between April 1 to April 30, which gives you the chance to spend Easter among nature and to be a part of one of the Azores most known traditions, the "Festa do Senhor dos Enfermos" (Procession of Our Lord of the Sick), which takes place on Furnas, on the island of Sao Miguel, during the first Sunday after Easter.
The event gathers a lot of people who start preparing it many months in advance and on the night before the religious procession they fill up the streets with flower carpets with artistic designs. The main goal of this procession is to visit all sick people so they can commune and kiss the cross. The Azores Airline promotion from Boston to Azores is also valid for travel between September 1 to October 31, 2017.
If Porto is your chosen destination keep in mind that the promotion is valid for travel between June 2 to June 30, just in time to attend the Festival Saint John of Porto, which happens every year on the night of June 23 and lasts until the morning of June 24. The attractions include street concerts, popular dancing parties, jumping over flames, eating barbecued sardines and carrying a plastic hammer which is made to hit other people's heads, but slowly. At midnight the city stops to see the fireworks. The promotion from Providence to Porto is also valid for travel between September 1 to September 29, 2017.
