BermudAir connects Bermuda and the US with year-round service. Tickets for its first three routes went on sale in August with flights starting last month.

The airline is operating Embraer E175 aircraft in an 88-seat configuration. Only 44 of those seats were to be sold for each flight, giving passengers an empty seat next to them (like intra-Europe Business Class). This was to change on November 1st when the airline receives its first Embraer E175 outfitted with suites. BermudAir calls this Aisle Class. There will only be 30 of these on each plane in a 1-1 configuration. The carrier announced this week that it will begin to sell Economy Class on all of its flights.

Adam Scott, CEO and Founder of BermudAir, said in a statement:

Since launching in August, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to increase air capacity for Bermuda and serve the business and tourism needs of the island. A dual-class cabin allows us to continue to deliver on that promise, giving our guests more options to fly with BermudAir. After nearly 170 successful flights, it’s clear that there is strong demand for direct, short-haul and premium flights between Bermuda and the East Coast. We’ve had overwhelmingly positive feedback from our guests about their experience onboard BermudAir, but guests also desire more options and flexibility. BermudAir is uniquely positioned to fill that need with our dual-class cabin.”

BermudAir sees an opportunity to eventually grow the fleet and add additional markets, but for now it will continue to serve Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL), and Westchester County Airport (HPN).

Anthony’s Take: The airline hasn’t yet finalized how many Business Class and Economy Class seats will be on aircraft. Tickets are on sale for both cabins, but BermudAir needs to figure out its business model going forward.
