Delta’s Largest-Ever Trans-Atlantic Schedule
Delta customers can look forward to more travel opportunities around the globe next year. From hubs across the U.S., fliers can choose from the history-rich city of Naples, Italy; the lush, green landscape of Shannon, Ireland; the picturesque scenery of Zurich, Switzerland; and many more memorable destinations.
Just recently Delta announced big changes to its SkyMiles program, and especially to the way you can earn Medallion status. There are also important changes to lounge access for Delta cardholders. At the same time, Delta also launched new welcome offers for its business credit cards and added welcome bonus restrictions for consumer cards.
Now let’s get back to the new routes and service additions that were announced this week.
For the first time, Delta will connect customers with nonstop service from JFK to the ancient city of Naples, Italy, the gateway to the Amalfi coast. Delta’s new daily service to Naples will begin on May 23, 2024. The latest Italian destination will add to the airline’s existing service to Milan, Venice and Rome.
Delta will also return to Shannon, Ireland, from JFK, beginning May 23, 2024. Last operated in 2019, this nonstop service joins Delta’s existing flying to Dublin, including newly announced service to the Irish capital from Minneapolis-Saint Paul.
Rounding out Delta’s new trans-Atlantic offerings from JFK next summer is a nonstop flight to Munich, which will operate three times a week beginning April 9, 2024.
For Delta customers looking to see Switzerland, Delta will again offer a nonstop flight from Atlanta to Zurich four times weekly beginning May 31, 2024, adding to the nearly 180 weekly flights to 21 destinations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East from the airline’s hometown hub.
Meanwhile, on the U.S. west coast, Delta’s nonstop, daily flight from LAX to Auckland, New Zealand, which begins Oct. 28, 2023, will extend to year-round service, operating daily from November to March and three times weekly from April to October. Delta will also increase service from LAX to Sydney, Australia, to twice-daily beginning this December.
Following winter service to Shanghai from Seattle and Detroit, Delta will also resume a four-times-weekly, year-round service to Shanghai-Pudong International Airport from its Los Angeles hub starting March 31, 2024. This previously operated route will allow Delta customers to conveniently connect to other destinations in China via the airline’s partnership with China Eastern Airlines.
