The flights are perfectly timed to connect on to the airlines’ North American services to New York, Boston, Toronto and Montreal.

SCOTTSDALE – From June, Azores Airlines will add to its current flights to Europe, connections between London Gatwick (United Kingdom) and Ponta Delgada (Azores), operating two times per week on Tuesday and Thursdays. The service will give passengers access to one of the most beautiful parts of Europe with the ability to ‘island hop’ among the nine amazing islands of the Azores and Madeira.

Aiden Walsh, Discover’s Head of Airline Development commented, “We are delighted to expand our partnership with Azores Airlines and introduce the UK to a new way to travel to the beautiful Azores and beyond.  I have been lucky to travel to these islands on several occasions. They are spectacular and a very special place on the edge of Europe.  The new direct London Gatwick flights offer the perfect opportunity for the UK market to experience all the delights the archipelago has to offer.  We look forward to working with our trade partners to develop sales to the Azores and beyond.”

Graça Silva, SATA Group Sales & Brand, Marketing and Communication Director, commented that “The increased demand for our flights strengthens the position of Azores Airlines in the competitive aviation industry, leading to expansion opportunities, new routes, and the possibility of offering even more options and convenience to our passengers. London is an air traffic meeting point with significant potential that will not only provide additional options for our passengers residing in the Azores but also new possibilities for connecting air traffic, which has increasingly and consistently used Azores Airlines flights to reach North America and Europe. We are delighted to expand our partnership with Discover the World to maximize the potential we are envisioning for this market.”
