Delta Air Lines is expanding its service to Paris with new flights from four American cities and enhanced business elite seating for customers on Paris flights to other U.S. cities.
Delta Air Lines is expanding its flight service to Paris starting next summer.
The expansions include new flights from Atlanta, Boston, Detroit and Newark to Paris, according to a press release from the airline. Beginning in 2013, the new Paris to Newark flight, as well as Delta’s existing flights from Paris to Cincinnati, New York-JFK and Seattle will feature full-flat bed seats in BusinessElite, offering each customer direct aisle access.
“Strengthening our network, while improving our customer experience both at the airport and on board, is key to our strategy. In our Paris hub, Air France and Delta customers will enjoy shorter transitions between the gates and concourses as we consolidate our airport operations,” said Bruno Matheu, Executive Vice President Marketing, Revenue Management and Network Air France-KLM and Chief Commercial Officer Air France.
At Dayton International Airport, Delta Air Lines posted the biggest gains in August with a 10.9 percent increase. The carrier also had the highest volume at the airport with more than 31,300 boardings.
Delta’s expanded and enhanced Paris service includes:
- New nonstop service from Newark’s Liberty International Airport, complementing Delta and Air France’s existing service from JFK and Delta’s existing service to Amsterdam.
- New summer seasonal service from Boston’s Logan International Airport, complementing the pair of existing Air France flights.
- An additional flight from Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, increasing the total number of daily flights between Atlanta and Paris on the joint venture carriers to four.
- Upgauged and expanded service between Detroit’s Metro Airport, from seasonal 767-300 service to year-round A330-300 service.
