Delta has announced its most extensive trans-Atlantic schedule following a record-setting summer season in 2023, alongside more route resumptions and changes.

The schedule will offer customers even more options for flying to destinations around the globe, with Delta believing there’s been no better time to explore Europe.

Delta will utilise New York JFK to operate 260 weekly flights to 18 countries and 29 destinations towards Europe, Africa and the Middle East, acting as a critical gateway to the world.

For the first time, Delta will connect customers on a nonstop service from New York JFK through to Naples, slated to begin on May 23, 2024.

Shannon in Ireland will also return to the network on the same day. This is the first time the airline has connected Shannon from JFK since 2019.

Beginning a little earlier on April 9 2024, Delta will also serve Munich from New York JFK.

Meanwhile, Atlanta will offer nonstop flights to Zurich four times a week starting May 31, 2024. Atlanta to Paris and Venice will also increase service as they witness strong demand across these cities.

Los Angeles’s nonstop daily flight to Auckland, New Zealand, beginning next month on October 28, 2023, will become a year-round flight. Oceania continues to be a sticking point for Delta’s expansion, with Sydney getting double daily service starting in December. Recent talk on forums has even highlighted a potential Melbourne launch. However, this would be some time away.

The resumption of a four times weekly service from Los Angeles to Shanghai Pudong will occur on March 31 2024.

While these are the notable changes coming to the network, Delta is committed to increasing flights across the United States to destinations in Europe as it experiences fantastic levels of demand and can make all this happen.

  1. Delta please fly non stop from Edinburgh to Calgary/Vancouver. If there is a transit tariff brought in at AMS now is the time to introduce it . I’ll book for sure.
