Customers looking for summer adventures abroad will discover plenty of inspiration in Delta’s service offerings to Europe, which include more routes and destinations in 2022, along with more opportunities to indulge in Delta’s premium cabins with 143% more seats available to customers vs. summer 2021.
“Delta has been focused on building back our network to give customers easy, convenient access to wherever they want to go, and we’re delivering on that promise with up to 74 daily flights to 21 European destinations from 10 U.S. gateways this summer,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s 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.” he added.
The airline has already added flights to major cities across the Atlantic with more frequencies, returning routes and modernized, upgraded aircraft. The latest updates to Delta’s summer schedule include new flights between New York-JFK and Stockholm (ARN) starting June 1 and between Salt Lake City and London-Heathrow (LHR) beginning May 14.
