Azores Airlines starts transatlantic flights from Porto

Azores Airlines startet this week its transatlantic services from Porto with flights to the United States and Canada. The airline also connects Ponta Delgada, Terceira and Madeira with North America.
The airline will be flying from Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport to New York JFK, Boston and Toronto, the services are operated by EUROATLANTIC Airways Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, which also operate the Madeira to North America routes.
Azores Airlines is the sixth airline to offer transatlantic flights at Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport complementing the operation of Air Transat, TAP Air Portugal, United Airlines, Iberojet and World2fly.
This direct air operation reinforces the offer of flights departing from Porto and North America, destinations to which Azores Airlines has been flying for more than two decades and where it has grown steadily. We believe that the city of Porto and the entire Northern Region have uniquely attractive arguments for the tourist segment, but equally important for the business and friends and family segments,” said Graça Silva, Sales, Marketing and Communication Director of the SATA Group.
The Porto-Boston route, is the only service where Azores Airlines has no competition. On flights to the New York metropolitan area it competes with the daily operation of TAP Air Portugal on Airbus A321LR and the two daily flights of United Airlines on Boeing 757-200, both airlines serving Newark. On the other hand, at Toronto-Person, it competes with Air Transat, which offers four weekly flights.

Flight schedule

  • Porto – New York JFK: Thursdays, in the opposite direction on Sundays.
  • Porto – Boston: Tuesday, in the opposite direction on Wednesdays.
  • Porto – Toronto: Fridays, in the opposite direction on Saturdays.
In addition to services to and from Porto, Azores Airlines continues its schedule of 24 weekly flights from the Azores archipelago (Ponta Delgada and Terceira) to Boston, New York, Toronto-Pearson, Montreal and Cape Verde (Praia).
In addition to these options, it is also possible to use StopOver Azores, a program that allows you to stay in the Azores for seven days.
