Delta Air Lines announced this week some exciting new international destinations later this year. Delta’s will be launching new non-stop service from Los Angeles to Tahiti and Atlanta to Cape Town both on December 17th.

Additionally, next May, Delta will be adding nonstop service from Atlanta to Tel Aviv complementing its existing service from New York’s JFK as well as Boston.

Per Delta,

With the addition of service to Cape Town from Atlanta, the largest airline hub in the world, Delta will expand on its leading position serving Africa, providing 10 times weekly service to South Africa specifically, via Cape Town and Johannesburg. The launch of additional Tel Aviv service brings the total of weekly Delta flights to Tel Aviv to 13, from three U.S. hubs – Atlanta, Boston and New York-JFK.

And in Los Angeles, Delta reopened the first phase of the new Delta Sky Way at LAX earlier this year, complete with a premier Delta Sky Club; the joint $2.3 billion investment in partnership with Los Angeles World Airports is slated for completion next year.

Atlanta to Cape Town service as well as Atlanta to Tel Aviv flights will both operate Airbus A350-900. Delta plans to use its Boeing 767-300ER aircraft for Los Angeles to Tahiti service.

It’s exciting to see Delta launch more international service including to two new destinations not currently served by Delta and I’d expect we’ll see even more destinations announced in the coming months.

  1. The BASA remains restricted to 21 frequencies on either side, so these is probably not reallocated without having consent in the SA aspect, in contrast to If your BASA had been amended to enhance the frequencies.

    On condition that US carriers, I feel, at the moment are offering 100% of your nonstop ability among the US and S. Africa, the willingness of S. Africa to incorporate a couple additional flight authorizations for US carriers claims they likely count on it to remain that way.

    SADoT is expected to grant both equally carriers’ purposes by August fifteen, 2022. Independently, the DOT has acquired assurance with the South African federal government the two extra frequencies during the Agreement might be allocated.

  2. Any idea when the Delta flights to Tahiti will show up on their schedule to be booked?
