The Portuguese airline Azores Airlines will be offering direct flights between Düsseldorf and New York JFK once a week from the beginning of June 2022. These are real direct flights and not non-stop flights, because a technical stopover is made in Ponta Delgada.

The carrier intends to operate this route, which is basically just an “extension” of the flights from Düsseldorf to Ponta Delgada, with aircraft of the type Airbus A321. It is correct to refer to the offer as a “direct flight”. Unfortunately, many are not aware that a so-called direct flight is not a flight from A to B without a stopover, but can contain any number of stopovers, provided the flight number remains the same. A connection from A to B without a stop is called a non-stop flight. In marketing, these two clearly defined terms are often “confused” to the detriment of customers.

In the booking process, Azores Airlines describes the flight connection from Düsseldorf to New York JFK as a direct flight. If you click on the flight information, you will see the technical stopover on the Portuguese island. These flights with Airbus A321 are offered on Thursdays. The travel time is given as 11 hours and 15 minutes.

In the opposite direction of flight, i.e. from New York JFK via Ponta Delgada to Düsseldorf, the connection will be offered from the beginning of June 2022 on Wednesdays. The Airbus A321 machine type is also planned here.
