Delta has announced they’ll be adding several new routes to Europe next summer. Highlights include nonstop service between Los Angeles to Paris; New York (JFK) to Ponta Delgada-Azores; and Atlanta to Lisbon to name a few.
New Boeing 777-200LR service will link Angelenos nonstop to Paris and Amsterdam beginning June 16, in addition to more than 100 onward destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India via easy connections on Delta’s joint venture partners Air France and KLM:
Delta’s largest trans-Atlantic gateway will expand next year with new seasonal service to the Ponta Delgada-Azores beginning May 24, year-round service to Lagos, Nigeria, beginning March 24 and an upgraded offering on New York-JFK to London-LHR with new A330 service.
At Delta’s Atlanta hub, the world’s most travelled, new daily seasonal service to Lisbon on Boeing 767 aircraft will begin May 24 and run through Sept. 4. Delta’s Atlanta hub will make it easier for U.S. customers to visit Portugal with convenient one-stop connections from over 150 destinations in the U.S.
Delta will add a third daily round-trip between Detroit and Paris beginning May 16 in addition to Delta’s and Air France’s existing service. The new flight will provide customers more choice and offer additional connections in Paris to over 100 destinations in Europe, Middle East, Africa and India.
I’m excited to see this announcement from Delta, which comes just a week after United Airlines Launches New Routes to Europe. These new routes aren’t available for purchase, so it’s hard to say how mileage award availability will be on any of these just yet.
