Per Delta’s press release, “Delta Air Lines will boost its trans-Atlantic route portfolio with two new routes from its Midwest hubs next summer. The airline will operate daily flights from Minneapolis-St. Paul to Rome, as well as six weekly flights from Detroit to Munich beginning May 26, 2016. The service will be operated in conjunction with Delta’s joint venture partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia.”
Customers on both flights will enjoy a full range of premium products, including full flat-bed seats with direct aisle access and a range of dining options in the Delta One cabin as well as Westin Heavenly Inflight Bedding and Tumi amenity kits. Customers flying in Delta Comfort+ benefit from up to four additional inches of legroom and up to 50 percent more recline than Delta’s Main Cabin seats, as well as Sky Priority boarding. Throughout the aircraft, all passengers will have access to on-demand in-flight entertainment and Wi-Fi.
In all, Delta will offer five new routes across the Atlantic beginning next summer: Detroit to Munich; Minneapolis-St. Paul to Rome; New York-JFK to Edinburgh, Scotland; Salt Lake City to London-Heathrow; and Raleigh-Durham to Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
