Delta to Increase Service to Paris
Delta Airlines will increase its service to Paris next summer to include new year-round and seasonal flights from 11 U.S. destinations. The airline will offer flights to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport from New York’s JFK, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Detroit, Cincinnati, Newark, Boston, Seattle, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh. All flights will be operated in conjunction with Air France, Delta’s joint venture partner.
Included in the expansion will be nonstop service to Paris from Newark’s Liberty International Airport, summer seasonal service from Boston’s Logan International Airport, an additional daily flight from Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, and a transition from seasonal 767-300 service to year-round A330-300 service from Detroit’s Metro Airport. In addition, the airline will also add an additional seasonal flight between JFK and Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.
Beginning in 2013, the new service to Paris from Newark, as well as existing service between Paris and Cincinnati, JFK, and Seattle, will feature fully flat bed seats in BusinessElite. Delta also recently announced that it will offer in-flight Internet service on long-haul international flights, beginning in early 2013.
