After all, our MCI departure schedule lists non-stops (via American, Delta and Frontier) to Cancun.
Vacation Express takes us to Punta Cana. And Air Canada provides non-stop service to Toronto.
That’s four international destinations!
Question is, how does that compares to our big competition to the west –Denver?
No comparison whatsoever.
DIA lists roughly 25 international non-stop destinations out of the Mile High City. They include cities in South America, the Caribbean, Mexico and several in Canada.
Will things ever improve for KCI? Maybe!
One of our major carriers may provide direct or through service to Europe in the not too distant future. That would possibly mean the aircraft would make a stop along the way with no plane change. Or it could be a situation where one flight number would be assigned but would entail a change of equipment somewhere (east) along the way.
But there IS a chance, folks!
The way I see it is that there is one foreign carrier that has made quite a name for itself during the past couple of years. And if my math is correct that carrier already has a pretty hefty footprint across the USA.
And better yet their management is hinting at further north American expansion.
So who is my pick for possible future KCI-Europe non-stop service?
NORWEGIAN AIRLINES, the super-discount carrier that’s shaking up the trans-Atlantic business, that’s who!
NORWEGIAN ticket prices are low, seats but rows are tight for which you pay extra for just about everything other than your seat. It’s pretty well a la carte all the way—and probably the best bet to sometime in the not too distant future to fly non-stop from KCI across the Atlantic Ocean.
