Top New Airline Routes 2023

Top New Airline Routes 2023


As we look ahead to 2023, in spite of economic headwinds, there's some good news in terms of new and resuming airline routes to some of our favorite destinations. We're especially keen on routes that aren't well served, where a new route either is the first connection between destinations or brings competition to a route previously monopolized by another carrier.

1. Qantas: New York JFK to Auckland, New Zealand AKL, from June 14, 2023

3 flights per week, operating on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.


2. United: San Francisco SFO to Rome FCO, May 25-October 27, 2023

Daily nonstop flights until 9/30/23, then 5X weekly until 10/27/23.

Rome, Italy


3. Virgin Atlantic: London LHR to the Maldives MLE, from October 22, 2023

3 flights per week outbound to the Maldives Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays, returning from the Maldives to London Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

7. ANA: Seattle SEA to Tokyo HND, from March 26, 2023
