ALBUQUERQUE – With more people getting COVID-19 vaccines, the Albuquerque International Sunport is restoring some flights to its operation.
City officials announced Thursday that several flight routes will be added back at the Albuquerque airport and other flights will increase their frequency.
Among the returns is Delta Air Lines will resume nonstop service this weekend between the Sunport and Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport in Minnesota. Meanwhile, jetBlue will boost its nonstop flights to New York City from two to four times weekly to daily until July. Then the flight will be available five times per week until the end of the summer.
Officials say the Sunport has seen the most passenger traffic since before the pandemic in recent weeks. During the worst of the pandemic, traffic was down by 97%.
