Airlines Take New Approach to International Routes
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Despite the sputtering economy, airlines still see bright spots in international travel, ranging from emerging markets such as Dubai and Liberia, to old favorites including Paris.
This month, for instance, UAL's (UAUA) United Airlines began Washington-Dubai service, while Delta (DAL) launched Atlanta-Mumbai and announced plans to fly to Monrovia, Liberia, its seventh African destination, in 2009. On Wednesday, Delta will unveil additional international destinations for next year.
Already, US Airways (LCC) and Delta have said that next summer, three medium-sized cities -- Charlotte, Pittsburgh and Raleigh-Durham -- will have seasonal service to Paris.
