Air Tahiti Nui this week introduced a new nonstop, once-a-week flight between New York City's JFK International Airport and Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris, allowing for a seven-night stay in Paris. Air Tahiti Nui's introductory web-only fare of $298 roundtrip is available for travel now until May 25.

The $7.4- billion Terminal Four opened April 15 at the Barajas International Airport in Madrid, Spain. The addition, designed by Richard Rogers and Antonio Lamela, doubles the airport's capacity. Designed by Richard Rogers and Antonio Lamela, the terminal houses the airport's European and long-haul sections and has 172 check-in desks and 38 gates. The next phase of work, to be finished in May 2007, open a subway link that will reduce travel time to the city center to 15 minutes.
