Delta to expand trans-Atlantic network in summer 2019

Delta has announced it plans to expand its trans-Atlantic network with new routes and additional frequency of service in summer 2019, the company said.

The airline will launch its first nonstop flight from Tampa Bay, Florida to Amsterdam, Netherlands. The year-round service, which launches on May 23, will be Delta´s 11th Amsterdam route from the US and second from Florida, following the launch of its Orlando service earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Delta is also expanding its hub-to-hub flying between the United States and Europe with services from Los Angeles International Airport to both Amsterdam and Paris Charles de Gaulle increasing to daily operations beginning June 16, 2019.

The LA to Paris service will be the third route to the French capital to be operated using the upgraded Boeing 777 aircraft, featuring the Delta One suites and Delta Premium Select. All flights between the US and mainland Europe are operated in conjunction with joint venture partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia.

Capacity from New York-JFK will also grow next summer with the launch of a second daily nonstop flight to both Paris and Tel Aviv, Israel. For Paris, the additional flight brings the total number in conjunction with Air France, KLM and Alitalia to seven a day.

Delta´s 2018 summer seasonal trans-Atlantic flying from its New York-JFK hub is planned to return, including the only US carrier nonstop service from JFK to the Azores, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Berlin.
