Delta Announces New Routes from New York City
Delta has announced plans to add flights from New York’s LaGuardia and JFK airports to ten destinations in Bermuda, the Caribbean, and Florida. The new service will launch starting in late 2012.
Delta’s new flights to Bermuda and the Caribbean will include daily year-round service between LaGuardia and Bermuda, new Saturday flights between JFK and St. Maarten, and year-round service between LaGuardia and Nassau. The carrier is also expanding service between JFK and Aruba, the Dominican Republic, and Jamaica to daily.
In Florida, Delta is adding new flights between LaGuardia and Sarasota and JFK and Fort Myers, as well as additional service between JFK and Tampa, and LaGuardia and Miami, Tampa, and Fort Myers.
In addition to the newly announced routes, Delta is also adding over 100 new flights to 26 new destinations from LaGuardia this summer. When all the routes have been launched, Delta will operate more than 260 daily flights between LaGuardia and over 60 destinations- the most of any carrier. Delta is also investing $160 million at the airport to modernize two terminals and build a walkway between them.
Delta is also improving its schedule at JFK to make connections easier for international flights. The carrier currently has over 45 international destinations from JFK. Delta is currently working on a $1.2 billion project to renovate Terminal 4. The revamped terminal will have nine new gates, and open in spring 2013.
