Airlift to the island is set to be bolstered in April with a series of flights coming back online during the course of the month.

In addition to the United Airways daily service to Newark, which starts at the very end of March, American Airlines and British Airways are set to increase the number of flights.

According to a flight scheduled published by Skyport, American Airlines will restart daily service to both Washington DC and Philadelphia in April, with the latter flight coming online on April 4.

The airline will also continue to offer daily service to New York, Charlotte and Miami.

Meanwhile, British Airways will increase its service to London Heathrow from five days a week to daily.

BermudAir is scheduled to continue its daily service to Boston, while continuing to offer five weekly flights to Westchester and Fort Lauderdale and three weekly flights to Orlando and Baltimore.

JetBlue will continue to offer daily service to New York and four weekly flights to Boston, while Delta will continue to offer four weekly flights to New York and three weekly flights to Atlanta.

Air Canada service to Toronto is also expected to continue with three weekly flights to the Canadian metropolis.

The Bermuda Tourism Authority said it expected a 25 per cent boost to the island’s “critical” metric of air capacity this year with April and May air figures projected to climb above 2019 levels.

The recovery is credited to the launch last year of BermudAir, as well as the growth of services by JetBlue, United and American Airlines.
