Delta announced they’ll be expanding their Caribbean service this winter by adding additional flights on several key routes. We’ll see added service to San Juan, Puerto Rico; Nassau, Bahamas; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Delta will continue to boost connections to Puerto Rico with an additional daily flight between New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) and Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU) beginning Dec. 21. This is the fourth daily frequency connecting SJU and JFK, and it will be operated using a Boeing 737-900ER with 20 First Class, 21 Delta Comfort+ and 139 Main Cabin seats.
Customers traveling between SJU and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport will also have more options this winter as Delta adds daily service from Dec. 21 through April 30, 2020. Delta will operate this route with a Boeing 737-800, offering 16 First Class, 36 Delta Comfort+ and 108 Main Cabin seats.
Boston customers will have more options for travel to the Caribbean this winter. Starting Dec. 21, Delta is expanding flights between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Lynden Pindling Nassau International Airport (NAS) from Saturday-only to daily. This daily seasonal service will be available until April 30, 2020, and will operate with a Boeing 737-800.
Starting Dec. 21st, Delta will operate a second flight daily between Atlanta and Las Americas International Airport in Santo Domingo (SDQ), the capital of the Dominican Republic. This expanded service is timed to open up additional connectivity through Atlanta for customers traveling from the Dominican Republic, who will now have convenient one-stop access to more than 175 destinations around the globe.
Additionally, Delta is upguaging one of the daily flights from Atlanta to San Juan to A330-300 aircraft, meaning you’ll be able to fly down to Puerto Rico in lie-flat seats in business class. This is great news for Medallions, since this flight is still considered eligible for complimentary upgrades.
