US airline Delta plans to operate up to 73 daily flights to a total of 25 of the ten US gateway destinations, over the next year.
The airline plans to increase its capacity across the pond by 90 percent during the summer of 2022, compared to 2021 numbers, TheSchengen.com reports.
Taking into account airline partners such as Air France, KLM and Virgin Atlantic, this plan means customers will be eligible to fly to 21 US cities.
Delta’s collaboration with the aforementioned partners means that passengers can connect from the American airline to 186 other destinations across Europe, as well as India and the Middle East.
In the coming months, Delta will add flights to other cities across the Atlantic with more frequencies, return routes and upgraded planes, the airline said.
Due to the coronavirus situation, the airline has temporarily suspended travel in order to prevent an increase in the number of COVID-19 infections. However, as the epidemiological situation in many other countries is improving, Delta Airlines has revealed its plans which include, among other things, opening its doors to some of the following markets during the summer of 2022.
Daily service to Zurich, Switzerland, on February 6 Five-times weekly service to Brussels, Belgium, on March 26 Five-times weekly service to Edinburgh, Scotland, on May 1 Five-times weekly service to Copenhagen and daily service to Prague, Czech Republic, on May 26
In addition, Delta Airlines announced through a statement that it will add additional flights to Amsterdam, London, Milan as well as Rome, offering its services twice daily during the summer of 2022.
According to Delta, flights will also resume to Frankfurt on December 13, which will operate daily through summer 2022.
“In Boston, new and returning routes as well as upgraded aircraft will mean rapid growth of the Delta hub at Logan International Airport. Delta will operate up to 10 daily flights to nine transatlantic destinations, offering approximately 5,000 more seats each week than in the summer of 2019, as stated in the statement published by the airline.
According to the announcement, Delta will operate flights to the following destinations among others:
Two routes launched on Memorial Day weekend to Athens, Greece as well as Tel Aviv Five-times weekly service restart to Edinburgh on May 27 Daily service resume to Rome on May 1
