LONDON – Delta Airlines has good news for anyone looking to get an early start on vacation planning for summer 2023. The airline is expanding its services on transatlantic flights, offering eight percent more seats than in summer 2022.
The US carrier will offer seven new routes, including nonstop service to Geneva, Switzerland, after a 30-year hiatus, and long-haul service from Los Angeles to London-Heathrow and Paris.
Next summer, Delta will give customers expanded access to popular destinations across the trans-Atlantic, continuing to solidify its position as the number-one carrier in New York.
With nearly 620 weekly flights and connectivity to 32 destinations in Europe and beyond, customers will have a wealth of iconic destinations to explore and an unmatched journey to enjoy across the pond – said Delta’s Senior Vice President of Network Planning Joe Esposito.
The largest transatlantic schedule from JFK
Delta is strengthening its position as the No. 1 domestic carrier in New York with its largest-ever schedule of transatlantic flights from JFK Airport next summer. The carrier will offer more than 220 weekly departures to 26 destinations, including new daily service to:
- Geneva – starting services on April 10, 2023 (returning after 30 years);
- London-Gatwick – start of services also on April 10, 2023;
- Berlin – resumption of daily flights from May 25, 2023.
In addition, Delta Airlines will offer a third seasonal flight to Rome starting May 25. The flights will operate daily.
JFK is undergoing a $1.5 billion transformation as part of Delta’s decade-long $12 billion investment in U.S. airport infrastructure. The expansion will include a new Delta Sky Club on the A Concourse of Terminal 4 as well as a Delta One Club featuring a dedicated level of service that further elevates the lounge experience.
Once complete in early 2024, all Delta operations will be consolidated into one terminal, enabling a more convenient travel experience for customers.
