Azores Airlines to connect Rhode Island to Azores with new A321 aircraft this summer

Warwick, RI -- Azores Airlines will resume its very popular nonstop service this summer from T.F. Green Airport in Rhode Island to Ponta Delgada, Azores.  The service operates on Fridays from June 8 through September 28, 2018. Tickets are on sale now, with airfare starting at $572 + taxes for round trip travel this summer.

Azores Airlines will offer this summer’s service on its new fleet of A321NEO aircraft. The A321NEO carries up to 186 passengers. With the widest single-aisle cabin on the market, every flight will offer modern comfort in every class.

The new aircraft cabin offers a modern design, a new air purifier with filters and light-emitting diodes for ambience lighting and overeat lighting. The new aircraft offers larger luggage storage as well.

“As this is a very popular route for Rhode Islanders, we are very pleased they will be able to travel on new airplanes that offer greater accommodations and amenities,’’ said Iftikhar Ahmad, president and CEO of the Rhode Island Airport Corporation. “The Azores is a great destination and we would encourage regional travelers to travel abroad this summer.”

The closest point to Europe from the United States, the Azores are an autonomous region of Portugal, and just four hours by plane from Rhode Island. The islands are becoming increasingly well known for eco-tourism, golf, and unique European cuisine. A variety of hiking trails from light to intermediate will marvel those who enjoy hitting the trail.

The sapphire blue and emerald green lakes, fertile prairies, volcanic cones and craters, colorful hydrangeas and azaleas, 15th century churches and majestic manor houses make the Azores unlike anywhere else on earth.
