The UK is set to gain a new direct air route to Portugal’s Azores archipelago.
Sata Azores Airlines has announced a new service, launching in June.
Three-times weekly Stansted-Ponta Delgada flights will get under way on 3 June.
Flights will operate on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays through to the end of September.
Sata previously operated a London route from Gatwick.
The Azores was one of just a handful of destinations to remain on the government’s quarantine-free travel corridor list into the new year.
