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 $574 include taxes for round trip travel this summer.
Azores Airlines will offer this summer’s service on a spacious A330 aircraft. This twin-aisle wide body offers quality comfort and its cabin is one of the quietest in the skies.
“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.
Azores Airlines, part of the SATA Group, has connected New England with the Azores and mainland Portugal for more than 40 years. For more information about booking flights call 800-762-9995 or visit http://www.azoresairlines.pt.
