The evolution of our route map

Our first ever route map never fails to make us smile. Back in 1984, with only one aircraft and one route, our operation was uncomplicated if nothing else. In fact, if you talk to our Cabin Crew who operated back then, they were so happy when our second route, Miami, came along. After a couple of years of only flying to Newark it was a pleasant change to have somewhere else to fly to.
