Delta Celebrates Inaugural Flights to Boston and Tampa and Starts Seasonal Services from Across Europe
Delta launched service between Edinburgh and Boston, Lisbon and Boston, and Amsterdam and Tampa as the trans-Atlantic travel season heats up.
Summer has arrived on the trans-Atlantic, and last week Delta hosted a number of inaugural flights to popular U.S. destinations. As Delta continues to build its network in Boston, two new nonstop services launched from Edinburgh, Scotland, and Lisbon, Portugal. These were joined by Delta's first nonstop trans-Atlantic route to Tampa, a flight from/ via Amsterdam.
The new routes come as Delta continues to focus on Boston. Delta now offers 12 daily flights from seven cities in Europe this summer. Next year, both Boston and New York-JFK will gain additional service from London with new flights from Gatwick in partnership with Virgin Atlantic.
Tampa, meanwhile, is the second Florida route for Delta from/ via Amsterdam, joining the Orlando service that launched last year. This summer, Delta will operate up to 21 daily flights to 11 destinations from Amsterdam to the United States.
In addition to these new routes, Delta is also re-starting service from six other European cities including Copenhagen, Glasgow and the Azores to New York-JFK, plus Reykjavik, Iceland, to Minneapolis.
Elsewhere, Delta is increasing its frequencies on some of its busiest routes, including New York-JFK from Tel Aviv and Paris, Boston and Minneapolis from Amsterdam and Atlanta from Rome.
In total, Delta will offer up to 92 daily flights this summer from 31 cities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa to the United States in conjunction with its joint venture partners Air France, KLM, Alitalia and Virgin Atlantic.
