Direct flights to Boston a boon for P.E.I

Direct flights to Boston a boon for P.E.I.: airport CEO

Delta Airlines will launch direct daily flights from Charlottetown to Boston this summer.

The news is exciting to more than just Red Sox fans, with new tourism marketing opportunities and easier connections for people working in P.E.I.'s biotechnology industry.

"It's big to the airport but it's much more important, I believe, to the province. We can be marketed as a destination direct from the New England states," said Charlottetown Airport CEO Mike Campbell.

"But more so than that, at this day, when we're looking to establish the bio-tech industry in Prince Edward Island, with so many related companies in the northeast part of the U.S., this is huge."

Delta Airlines will offer its first direct flight between Charlottetown and Boston June 29. The flights will run through the summer to Sep. 16. They will leave Charlottetown at 2:50 p.m. and arrive in Boston at 3:30 p.m.

Campbell notes Boston also offers connections to more than 40 destinations around the world.
