Flights decrease as summer season draws to a close

The number of flights to the island will decrease this month and some routes will stop as the summer season comes to a close.

The September flight schedule, released by Skyport yesterday, showed several airlines reducing service to the island, including an end to the summer services between Bermuda and Newark, Philadelphia, Miami and Ponta Delgada in the Azores.

The changes will reduce the number of flights a week from 43 to 31 – down more than a quarter.

American Airlines will end its weekly services between Bermuda and Philadelphia and Miami, with the last flights scheduled for September 4.

Sata Airlines, which offered regular flights to the Azores over the summer, will end the service with a flight on September 5.

United Airlines, which offered daily flights between Bermuda and Newark, is scheduled to halt the service after September 6 with no further flights from the airline on the schedule.

JetBlue will cut its seven-day a week service to Boston by one flight – the Wednesday service, but its service to JFK in New York will not change.

But schedules for Air Canada to Toronto, British Airways to London and Delta flights to New York and Atlanta will remain unchanged.
