A new intermodal transportation facility has opened at T.F. Green Airport in Providence, Rhode Island. The $267 million InterLink encompasses a parking garage, airport car-rental companies and a commuter-rail station. A skywalk connects the InterLink to the airline terminals. Rail service, which will extend as far as Boston, begins next year. Meanwhile, the aerotrain atKuala Lumpur International has closed for six months of construction. The most affected area: the satellite building housing Gates C1 to C37, home to most of KL’s international flights. The train will be replaced by shuttle buses, which require at least 15 additional minutes of transit time.

Bet you didn’t see this coming this: The newest airline at Anchorage is JetBlue Airways. It’ll fly seasonal nonstops to Long Beach, California, starting on May 26.

Joplin Regional Airport in Missouri will get some desperately needed new service beginning on February 10. American Eagle, the American Airlines commuter carrier, launches daily fights from its Dallas/Fort Worth hub using 64-seat turboprops.

One thought on “More trains in Providence, fewer in Kuala Lumpur”

  1. Alaska should be one of the destinations on the Top D
    estinations list. Because of its size, I recommend those traveling to Alaska to divide the state into smaller sections to make the best use of their time. One such example can be seen at Anchorage is the hub, with days and days worth of fun, from the Native Heritage Center to a sled dog dinner show, to a museum for every interest, from aviation to natural sciences. Heading south from Anchorage takes you to the most popular salmon and halibut fishing on the Kenai Peninsula. There you can also enjoy the beautiful Sea Life Center. Or head north from Anchorage and experience the magnificence of Mt. McKinley in Denali National Park. Further north you will find Fairbanks, and the city of North Pole, where you can visit the Santa Claus house! However you decide to tackle our great state, it will be an adventure. We at Alaska Car & Van Rentals would love to help you tailor your trip to your interests. Collectively we have almost 200 years of Alaskan experience.
