And it expanded service to 10 trans-Atlantic destinations
Delta customers will have even more flight options between the US and Europe beginning in 2020, with new Summer service between Boston and Rome and expanded flying from three of the airline's hubs to 10 popular trans-Atlantic destinations.
In 2020 the carrier will launch four new trans-Atlantic flights from Boston, including new seasonal service to Rome, the carrier's second daily flight to Paris and new service to London-Gatwick and Manchester. The airline will also extend seasonal service between Boston and Edinburgh and Lisbon, two destinations added in 2019.
In addition to new daytime service from New York to London-Heathrow, next year Delta's second-daily flight from "JFK" to Tel Aviv will become year-round. Delta is also launching new service to Mumbai and Bogota in Dec. 2019, and is expanding the availability of seasonal service from "JFK" to Athens, Copenhagen and Berlin.
The US airline has grown its presence in New York City by over 65 percent in the last 10 years and today operates more than 520 peak-day departures from its hubs at "LaGuardia" and "JFK". The airline offers from "JFK" more than 240 peak daily departures to nearly 100 worldwide destinations.
Its seasonal service between its hub at Salt Lake City International Airport and London-Heathrow will become year-round beginning Dec.19, 2019. Additionally, the carrier is expanding the operating season between Tampa and Amsterdam in 2020.
Delta's trans-Atlantic flights are operated in partnership with its joint-venture partners Virgin Atlantic, Air France and KLM. The US Department of Transportation recently granted the four airlines preliminary approval for a combined joint-venture that will provide customers an extensive network of 300 daily flights.
