Delta’s largest ever transatlantic schedule is now fully operational with customers now able to book flights a wide range of destinations across Europe and beyond from all of Delta’s hubs.
Destinations include beach destinations in the likes of France or in other areas of the Mediterranean. There are sprawling cities full of attractions and history, such as London, Amsterdam and more.
In total, Delta now offers 77 routes spread across its long list of American hubs, with a total of 32 destinations.
Over the last 3 months, Delta has now restarted or launched 31 routes in an effort to build back to pre pandemic levels and now grow beyond such levels.
Growth across all major US hubs
Delta’s home and largest hub in Atlanta has seen some significant restarts and new additions, including flights to Tel Aviv, Nice and Edinburgh.
Moving to the west coast, LAX has seen its share of new routes and restarts, including flights to Paris and Heathrow joining the list of routes. The latter route to London last operated in 2015.
Back on the east coast, New York JFK has seen plenty of new routes and restarts from Summer ’22.
New routes include flights to Geneva, Berlin and now London Gatwick, with the Gatwick route once again being a route Delta hasn’t served for a significant number of years. Delta last served Gatwick from JFK fifteen years ago.
Routes returning for Summer ’23 season after last operating in Summer ’22 include the likes of Reykjavik, Venice, Prague, Nice and Copenhagen.
Not forgetting the rest of Delta’s US hubs, these airports also saw new and returning routes added too, such as Minneapolis, Detroit and Boston seeing such new additions.
The customer experience flying Delta
On most flights across the Atlantic, passengers flying with Delta will have the choice of booking in one of 4 classes.
These classes include Delta One, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Economy.
Those flying in Delta One will get the chance to enjoy premium facilities and service whilst flying in a lie flat seat and on some aircraft in their own personal suite.
As for Delta Premium Select customers, these passengers will get a mix of Business class and premium economy class service with plenty of space to stretch out, a deep recline, personal amenities and a personal dining service and more.
Moving down to Delta Comfort+, passengers here will get a slightly more elevated experience above the economy passengers, but whatever class you as a passenger choose to fly in, Delta always ensures you are well looked after on your journey to ensure the best possible experience.
