Several airlines recently made new announcements of adding new flights to and from the Palm Springs International Airport. Virgin America announced in its own press releases and in several publications across the country about its exciting news of adding a nonstop flight from JFK (New York) to Palm Springs. USA Today reported on September 25, 2012, “The nonstop JFK-Palm Springs service will begin Dec. 22 and operate only on Saturdays during the winter season. But it's significant for Virgin America as it's only the second route for the airline that doesn't involve its main bases of San Francisco and Los Angeles. New York JFK-Las Vegas is the other.”

The local Desert Sun also reported on September 21, 2012, “Allegiant Air, which announced plans to fly from Palm Springs International Airport to Oakland and Eugene, Ore., beginning Nov. 15, continues to grow”. This is exciting news for Northern California travelers and those coming from the Pacific Northwest. Allegiant Air is also a popular airline for Canadian travelers from its Bellingham, WA destination. The demand is up and the airlines are responding. This news is not new to Canadians as WestJet already announced last year of its new flights from Toronto and several other major cities. This continues to be great news for Palm Springs area and its overall tourism, says Palm Spring Agent Constantine Kolytiris.

“The air traffic demand is not surprising to us who are in Palm Springs real estate in the valley,” states Palm Springs Realtor Constantine Kolytiris. “We have known for some time that our market has been getting a lot more interest in both real estate and tourism from Canada, the Northwest and surprisingly enough the East Coast.”
