Look up in the sky! It’s a bird….it’s a plane! No….it’s your weekly air travel news! Here’s what’s happening in the world of aviation, from the ground up.

Job Hunting?  Check Here!

For the first time in recent history Delta Airlines has about 1000 job openings at airports around the US.  Seems like the days of airlines losing money are over and Delta (along with several other airlines) is starting to replace many of the employees they had to let go.  Everything from baggage handlers to flight attendants are needed and most of these jobs come with perks like free travel!!

Easier All-Inclusive Access

Starting Feb. 16 low-fare carrier Air Tran will be flying twice weekly service to the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana.  Flights will be from Atlanta, with connections from all of the other airports they service.  Air Tran already flies to several Caribbean destinations and this addition will allow access to the island rich with all-inclusive resorts.  Could be the start of a reasonably priced getaway?

Round-The-World Deal

As if it were custom made for all of the Lost Girls out there!  Until September 30 you can score a 30 % discount on an around the world plane ticket with the SkyTeam Alliance.  It’s in honor of their 10th anniversary together and if you’re in the market for some serious travel in the next year it’s not to be missed.  There are some restrictions (check them out here), and the special rate cannot be booked online.
