Delta Air Lines to add new Minneapolis-St. Paul/Mexico City service

Delta Air Lines has announced that beginning June 8, 2019, it will offer direct service between Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and Mexico City, Mexico, the company said.

Delta said Mexico City is the latest in a growing string of international destinations to which the company has landed air service with the help of GREATER MSP and the MSP Regional Air Service Partnership.

The MSP Regional Air Service Partnership (RASP) is a collaborative air service development initiative launched in 2017 by the MAC and GREATER MSP. The RASP helps identify air service needs of businesses in the region and supports MAC efforts to engage airlines that could potentially serve those markets.

MSP set a new passenger record in 2017, with more than 38 million people traveling through the nation´s 17th busiest airport. The airport is Delta Air Lines´ second largest hub, and the home base of Sun Country Airlines.
