Delta announced today that they would be expanding their European flights from Atlanta and New York (JFK). This new service from Atlanta and New York will increase capacity to Amsterdam, Paris, Rome and Zurich.
Delta to Expand Europe Service
Delta will now offer year round service from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Zurich Airport and expanded service to Rome.
Per the press release, the Zurich flight will be operated using a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft featuring full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access in the BusinessElite cabin. Daily Zurich service will begin effective June 16, 2014 and during the summer will complement the airline’s existing service from Atlanta.
Rome service will operate daily from April to October on an Airbus A330-300 aircraft, and then five times per week in November, December and March on a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft in conjunction with Delta joint venture partner Alitalia.
Effective this winter, Delta and its joint venture partners Air France-KLM and Alitalia are also expanding service to key European hubs at Paris Charles De Gaulle International Airport and Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
From Atlanta, the joint venture will offer additional daily nonstop service for a total of four daily flights to both Amsterdam and Paris, timed to provide customers with more connecting opportunities to destinations throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
It’s always nice to see seasonal service go to year round so let’s hope they will be able to maintain the JFK-Zurich service.
