Azores airline SATA has confirmed that it has “temporarily” suspended its direct route between Terceira Island and Boston, in the United States.

It justified the decision as being due to low occupancy rates because of the covid-19 pandemic. It said “In July, the average occupancy rate on the route was 21% and, in August, to date, it fell even further to 17%”. It added the Terceira-Boston connection “is an important route for Azoreans, which in normal times, would be of value to everyone”.
