Connecting the United States to Europe is one of the possibilities that Azores Airlines offers this winter. It is simple to leave Boston or New York, spend a few hours in São Miguel and continue towards the “Old Continent” and the City of Light. Thursdays and Saturdays are the days of the week to point out. But during the trip, it is almost certain that few will be indifferent to the aerial landscape. Flying over the islands of the Azores, on a sunny day and with land in sight, even with less hot temperatures, is a sight that awakens the senses. The flight between Paris and the Azores was designed to give you the opportunity to stop in the Azores, stay and continue your journey to New York or Boston. The only difference is the length of stay, as the opportunity of a simple round-trip flight is as possible as the possibility of continuing to the other side of the Atlantic. And that length of stay is decided by those who travel. Flights between Paris and the Azores are on Thursdays and Saturdays, as is the connection between Ponta Delgada and New York.
