MetroAir Announces Winter Seasonal Routes; Transatlantic Equipment Changes

October 24, 2016 - Featured Post, News, Operations

KANSAS CITY, MO – MetroAir Virtual today published its’ upcoming schedule changes, which will take effect beginning November 1st.

The majority of the changes come in the form of seasonal flights which will bring skiers, snowboarders, and vacationers to the slopes of the Coloradan Rockies and Canadian winter resorts. Aspen, Eagle/Vail, Telluride, Montrose, Kelowna, and Kamloops will all see MetroAir service from various hubs resume throughout the winter season. New winter destinations include Castlegar, BC from Portland, OR, and Mont Tremblant, QB from Boston.

MetroAir has also decided to move two more transatlantic flights onto Airbus A319 equipment, utilizing their Boston hub as a strategic stopping point for passengers traveling to Europe. Flights from Boston to Leeds-Bradford and Belfast will be operated by the Airbus A319 beginning next month.

“Moving our hub operations to Boston has been instrumental in routing passengers efficiently across the Atlantic,” explained Chief Operating Officer William Hogarth, “Boston’s geographical location allows us to use aircraft with lower overall operating costs, which allows us to continue operating what we call long, thin routes at higher levels of profitability.”

Furthermore, the recent delivery of two new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft has allowed MetroAir to schedule a second daily flight between Los Angeles and Hong Kong, one of the airlines self-reported highest earning routes.


All schedule changes are listed below and are subject to change.
