A great summer tradition for my wife and I will be taking a pause. No summer Delta New York JFK – Prince Edward Island, Canada flight. The flights still had not appeared for booking and PEI’s Charlottetown Airport confirmed it. Airplane geek friend theorized Delta’s reduction of regional jets may play a part.
We loved the flight, departing after work on a Friday and arriving back in the morning on Monday we could have a quick getaway without using vacation time. Delta saver award availability was often good.
PEI retains service from Canadian cities on Air Canada, WestJet and SunWing. SunWing is new to me, they run seasonal services to Toronto, Cuba and Dominican Republic. There are no nonstop flights from US cities. The nearest major alternate airport is Halifax, a 3-hour drive. Note the $45.50 roundtrip toll for the Confederation Bridge paid when departing PEI. To eastern PEI there is a ferry from Caribou, Nova Scotia.
See our posts on Prince Edward Island for scenes from the land of Anne and lobster.
We hope to see the Delta flight return in 2016.
