The flights will operate using Boeing 767-400 aircraft.

The airline will also add seasonal service to the following summer destinations:

  • Wyoming: The airline will also add summer-season flights between its Houston and San Francisco (SFO) hubs and Jackson Hole, Wyo.

The Houston flights will operate twice weekly from 8th June to 27th August, using Boeing 757 aircraft.
