Delta Air Lines announces new routes from Boston to new destinations: Pittsburgh and New Orleans. Over the past few years, Delta has greatly increased their service in Boston so I’m not surprised to see these new routes being added.
Beginning Oct. 1, Delta will operate twice-daily nonstop flights to Pittsburgh. Seasonal service to New Orleans will start on Feb. 10, 2018. With the new routes, Delta and its partners will serve a total of 47 destinations worldwide from Boston, including nonstop international flights to London, Amsterdam, Paris and Dublin.
On Dec. 21, Delta will also expand weekend West Palm Beach, Fla., and Fort Myers, Fla., flights to daily, as well as increase weekend Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., flights to twice daily. Delta will also continue to support strong holiday travel demand with expanded nonstop service to popular Caribbean destinations including Montego Bay, Jamaica; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Nassau, Bahamas; beginning Dec. 21.
With Pittsburgh and New Orleans, Delta has now announced 10 new markets from Boston in 2017. The airline’s new service also includes:
- Tampa twice-daily on Airbus A319 aircraft as of February
- Dublin, Ireland daily on Boeing 757-200 aircraft as of May
- San Francisco twice daily on Boeing 757-200 aircraft as of June
- Buffalo, N.Y. three-times-daily on Bombardier CRJ-200 aircraft (operated by Endeavor Air, Inc.) as of August
- Austin, Tex. daily on Airbus A319 aircraft as of September
- Kansas City daily on Bombardier CRJ-900 aircraft (operated by Endeavor Air, Inc.) as of September
- Jacksonville, Fla. daily on Embraer E170 aircraft (operated by Republic Airline) as of September

Delta is really trying to fine-tune their Boston service, and this latest announcement does just that. I wouldn’t be surprised if we expect to see even more added service from BOS in the near future, including some new international routes!
