Airline news org: Orlando tops nation in new routes

Orlando tops nation in new routes
Still glowing from celebrity British billionaire-airline exec Richard Branson’s visit to promote his Virgin America’s new flights to California earlier this week, Orlando International Airport was honored for having added the most new destinations – 14 – in the past year.

Airline Network News and Analysis, an organization that runs a website providing information to aviation insiders and others, awarded Orlando it’s “U.S. Annie” awardtoday for having added the most new routes in the nation. Miami International Airport finished second with 13, followed by Chicago-O’Hare International Airport with 11.

“Nothing it seems is more likely to generate new routes than the promise of sunshine and the two leading airports when it came to the biggest net gain in destinations served this year were both in Florida,” the organization stated.

Virgin America’s flights — to Los Angeles and San Francisco — wouldn’t even count in the Annie competition because Orlando already has flights to those two cities.
