Delta to Increase Flights to Europe

(21 Mar 2022, 11:27 +07)  Delta has unveiled plans to increase its trans-Atlantic operations and launch new premium in-flight experiences.

This summer, the airline will offer more flights to Europe with new routes and destinations, along with more opportunities to indulge in Deltas premium cabins with 143% more seats available to customers than in summer 2021.

Delta has been focused on building back our network to give customers easy, convenient access to wherever they want to go, and were delivering on that promise with up to 74 daily flights to 21 European destinations from 10 U.S. gateways this summer, said Joe Esposito, Deltas S.V.P. Network Planning. We have also accelerated improvements to our aircraft so that customers can enjoy a more comfortable journey, including offering more seats than ever before in Delta Premium Select, which will be available on nearly every flight to Europe in the months ahead.

As international travel returns, Delta customers on nearly every flight to Europe will be able to enjoy an upgraded experience on the airlines refreshed Airbus A330 and Boeing 767-300 fleets, which now offer a consistent onboard experience with a choice of four classes Delta One or Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin.

Both fleet types have also received additional upgrades like refreshed lavatories and new LED cabin lighting.

Delta Premium Select, the airlines premium economy cabin, includes more space to relax and stretch out with a wider seat, deeper recline and an adjustable footrest and leg rest. Customers will watch Deltas best-in-class seatback entertainment on larger screens while powering up their own devices with in-seat power and USB ports.
