Delta announced they would be launching new non-stop service between New York and Boston to several new cities including Dublin, Ireland; Lisbon, Portugal; and Berlin, Germany.
Per Delta Air Lines,
Delta is expanding service from New York and Boston to Europe in summer 2017 with new service between Boston and Dublin and between New York and Lisbon, as well as returning service between New York and Berlin.
Starting May 25, 2017, Delta will introduce nonstop seasonal service between Dublin Airport and Boston Logan International Airport. This flight will complement Delta’s existing services to Dublin from New York-JFK and Atlanta.
Also on May 25, the airline will begin serving Portugal when it launches a daily seasonal flight between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Lisbon Airport, and will resume flights to Berlin with the launch of nonstop service between JFK and Tegel Airport.
Delta’s Dublin and Lisbon services will each be operated using a Boeing 757-200 aircraft with 164 seats, while Delta’s Berlin service will be operated using a Boeing 767-300 aircraft with 225 seats. Customers traveling in the Delta One cabin will enjoy fully flat-bed seats and a range of seasonal dining options accompanied by wines selected exclusively for Delta by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. The airline’s focus on partnering with premium brands extends to providing business class guests with Westin Heavenly Inflight Bedding from Westin Hotels & Resorts and TUMI amenity kits featuring products by Kiehl’s Since 1851.
Delta is really trying to increase their service to Europe, and this latest announcement doesn’t come as a surprise to me. I’m personally excited about the new flight to Lisbon, Portugal as it’s a country that I’ve always wanted to visit.
