The “New Year” has a way of getting us to think about the year ahead; goals we’ll set, accomplishments we’d like to achieve, milestones we’d like to reach, and the places we’d like to visit.
Just two simple words, “new year”, and snippets of our life in the upcoming year play in our heads like a trailer to an upcoming blockbuster movie.
While most New Years resolutions are often overrated and underachieved, on the contrary, with each year travel gets easier and easier thanks to advancements in technology from airplanes to internet connectivity in remotes areas around the world.
2019 will host a number of new and very exciting airlines routes around the world, here are some noteworthy new flights.
