These are the best new international flight routes launching from the U.S. in the upcoming months.

Algarve Portugal

New flight routes make it easier to travel to exotic destinations in less time with fewer stops.

These are 10 of the most exciting new flight routes American travelers can look forward to this summer:

1. Newark To Faro, Portugal

One of the coolest new routes this summer is a nonstop flight from Newark, New Jersey (EWR) to Faro, Portugal (FAO) on United Airlines.

This new route will commence on May 27, 2024 just in time for spending summer in the stunning Algarve region of southern Portugal.

This is the first-ever nonstop flight from the U.S. to Faro, making it easier than ever for travelers to get to this trending destination.

2. New York To Tulum, Mexico

Another exciting new flight route is New York, New York (JFK) to Tulum, Mexico (TQO) on JetBlue Airways, which will begin on June 13, 2024.

JetBlue is the latest airline to announce new direct flights to Tulum International Airport, which just opened in December and has started welcoming international flights this week.

This new airport makes visiting one of Mexico's trendiest beach destinations easier than ever!

3. Dallas To Barcelona, Spain

It will be easier than ever for Texans to get from the U.S. to Spain this summer with the launch of a new route from Dallas, Texas (DFW) to Barcelona, Spain (BCN.)

This route will be flown by American Airlines, and it begins on June 5, 2024.

4. Philadelphia To Naples, Italy

Another new international flight route launching this summer is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PHL) to Naples, Italy (NAP) on American Airlines beginning June 5, 2024.

Travelers can also fly nonstop to Naples from the New York metro area, with direct flights from both JFK and Newark.

Naples is the gateway to the stunning Amalfi Coast region of Italy, as well as beautiful islands like Ischia and Capri.

5. Chicago To Venice, Italy

Venice is another Italian city with a new nonstop flight route from the U.S. this summer. Beginning June 5, 2024, American Airlines will fly nonstop from Chicago, Illinois (ORD) to Venice, Italy (VCE.)

Summer is actually not the best time to visit Venice — I recommend going there in late September or even October instead for fewer crowds and better weather.

6. New York To Palermo, Italy

Here's a really cool new route for travelers craving a new destination in Italy. The Italian airline Neos Air will commence flights from New York, New York (JFK) to Palermo, Italy (PMO) on June 9, 2024.

Palermo is the capital of the island of Sicily, a fascinating destination for culture and scenery.

7. New York To Bucharest, Romania

American Airlines is launching a new service from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PHL) to Copenhagen, Denmark (CPH) this summer starting June 6, 2024.

This makes it easier than ever to explore the cool and colorful city of Copenhagen, one of the top destinations in Scandinavia.

9. Newark to Marrakech, Morocco

This route won't launch until the fall, but beginning October 24, 2024, Americans will be able to fly nonstop from Newark, New Jersey (EWR) to Marrakech, Morocco (RAK) on United Airlines.

Fall is a great time to visit this gorgeous North African country that has recently broken all-time tourism records.

10. Houston To Medellin, Colombia
