All business-class carrier BermudAir ends the aisle vs window seat dilemma

BermudAir new airline

A new all business-class carrier that will fly passengers from the west coast of the United States (US) to the paradise archipelago of Bermuda has launched.  

On August 24, 2023, BermudAir announced tickets were now ready to buy, with the airline’s first flights departing at the end of August 2023. 

The phased introduction will see BermudAir’s Embraer E175 aircraft begin service with a standard 88-seat configuration, but only 44 seats will be sold for each flight. 

From November 1, 2023, luxury seating suites will be fitted which BermudAir claims will “usher in a new era of business class air travel with the introduction of Aisle Class”. 

According to the airline, this new seating concept will eliminate the aisle vs window seat dilemma. 

With the arrival of the new suites BermudAir’s E175s will be configured with just 30 seats to feature “unmatched privacy and ample workspace”, with only two seats across from each other in each row.  

Passengers will be able to take advantage of under-seat stowage for a carry-on and personal item, in-seat power, plus free Wi-Fi, including Wi-Fi powered entertainment and messaging. Overhead bins will be obsolete.  

“We are excited to launch BermudAir as Bermuda’s first carrier, maintaining our commitment to start filling seasonal service gaps and establish frequency of service to and from the island this fall,” BermudAir founder and CEO Adam Scott, said. “Our mission to elevate the travel experience for everyone and provide well-timed, traveller-centric, stress-free flights on these new routes is just the beginning. Establishing this year-round service is a first step in our journey to redefine the travel experience and we look forward to rolling out our phased introduction of BermudAir’s Aisle Class.”

The first three direct routes to Bermuda L.F. Wade International Airport (BDA) will be from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Westchester County Airport (HPN), located near New York City. 

Service connecting BDA to BOS and HPN commences on August 31, 2023, with service to FLL beginning on September 22, 2023. 

“We are very happy to welcome BermudAir as Bermuda’s first carrier, as they work toward setting a new standard for travel,” Wayne Furbert, Minister of Transport, said. “This partnership represents an exciting milestone for our island, as it enhances connectivity and strengthens our position as a premier destination. With BermudAir’s commitment to providing convenient connections, we anticipate a significant boost to our tourism market.”
