Are you making travel plans but not sure where to go? The airlines have added many new leisure destinations to their route maps, anticipating strong travel demand this summer. Some of these destinations are seasonal; some are less than daily. These resources will help with your travel plans.
The pandemic has forced airlines to publish schedules on a short-term basis as they monitor travel demand. The good news is that bookings are increasing and more flights are entering our market and at our connecting hubs. More flights mean better access to your destinations. We recommend you check weekly to see what your options are as you plan your vacation.
