The U.S. airline has launched a summer program with over 650 weekly flights between the two sides of the Atlantic, with a 30% increase in seat capacity compared with the summer 2022 season.
American airlines are determined to make the most of the upturn in international air travel after more than two and a half years of crisis linked to the Covid pandemic, and among them Delta is pulling out all the stops on its transatlantic network to regain and exceed pre-crisis traffic levels. In all, Delta Airlines will be offering up to 650 weekly peak frequencies throughout the summer. The airline will operate a total of 77 routes to 32 destinations in Europe throughout the summer. This represents a 30% growth in seat capacity compared with 2022.
