As of June 12, they will do one more frequency per week, at the same time. The Canarian airline launches the trip to Boston for 250 euros and to Toronto for 287 euros (the journey). All these matters were analyzed in a bilateral meeting that took place in September between the presidents of the Azores and the Canary Islands, Vasco Alves Cordeiro andFernando Clavijo, and the heads of the two companies involved.
The year 2005 was when Binter began an ambitious process of international expansion to offer direct flights from the archipelago to West Africa and Portugal. At the moment it already adds eleven international routes from the Canary Islands. SATA, on the other hand, has more than seventy-five years of experience and operates flights to continental Portugal and islands, Europe, the United States and Canada.
