Portland Jetport Is Gateway to the Sun

PORTLAND, Maine - Most Mainers experienced their first snowfall last week, and as many residents are already cursing the long winter months ahead, the Portland International Jetport is poised to transport the weather-weary to warmer destinations, including sooner-than-expected Southwest Airlines flights to Orlando. 

According to Jetport Director Paul Bradbury, Southwest will begin its seasonal non-stop flights to Orlando beginning February 21, two weeks earlier than originally planned.

"We just received  word that Southwest is launching this service early," said Bradbury. "As people think about post-holiday travel, and perhaps even holiday gifts, this is welcome news."

Southwest Airlines will be operating non-stop service to Orlando International Airport on Saturdays starting February 21st. Flights are on sale now and can be booked online at www.southwest.com.

Portland Jetport is home to five carriers offering 45 departures per day that make easy connections to an endless array of hot spots such as Orlando, Los Angeles and Cancun as well as Jamaica, Aruba and the Dominican Republic. 

"Weekend getaways are popular from now through spring, and the Portland Jetport makes taking those trips convenient and easy," said Bradbury. "All five of our air carriers now offer flights to U.S. and international sun and fun destinations. What that means is our passengers can find wallet-friendly flights to all of the top destinations, all while using the convenient Portland Jetport." 

According to the Farmer’s Almanac (http://farmersalmanac.com/weather/2014/08/24/2015-us-winter-forecast/), this winter will likely bring “below-normal temperatures for about three-quarters of the nation,” with Maine earmarked as “wintry, wet and white,” making a winter getaway even more appealing. 

“There are many ways to enjoy winter in Maine,” said Bradbury. “But it’s also nice to have a getaway to look forward to or to have the option for a last-minute trip. We’re ready to help folks jump on a plane and head to a sunny beach whenever the mood strikes.”
