Delta Airlines expands in Boston and New York with new flights

Delta Airlines has announced three new routes from Boston Logan International Airport and a new service to Canada from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Delta customers residing in Boston and New York will now enjoy more connectivity.

From next week, Delta will fly to a total of 16 destinations from Boston when it launches a new route to Reykjavik, Iceland on 20th May 2021.

Boston expansion

Starting 4th October 2021, Delta will introduce new services from Boston to:

  • Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport – twice-daily, operated by the Airbus A220-100
  • Charlotte Douglas International Airport – 3-times-a-day, operated by the Embraer E175
  • Upgrade nonstop service to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport on the Airbus A220-100 (this will mark A220’s official debut in the city)
  • Toronto Pearson International Airport – 3-times-a-day, operated by the Embraer E175

In addition to this set of new routes, Delta will upgrade its Boston-Los Angeles route by using the Boeing B757, which is equipped with the lie-flat Delta One Cabin (business class).

A220 expansion in Boston

Delta is already flying the Airbus A220 aircraft from Boston on business routes such as New York LaGuardia, Dallas/Ft. Worth and Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The A220 is one of the most popular aircrafts at the moment and Delta’s A220s are ideal for business travellers. The 109-seated aircraft offers a modernized, spacious onboard experience.

For example, it has a state-of-the-art interior, featuring seat-back screens and 2Ku WiFi.

Further on, Delta plans to expand the A220 to other Northeast business markets. The airline is eyeing the routes LaGuardia-Chicago O’Hare, as well as New York and Boston to Raleigh-Durham.

New York expansion

New York will also see a boost in Delta’s activity when it launches a twice-daily service on 5th August 2021 between LaGuardia In International Airport and Toronto Pearson International Airport operated by the Embraer E175 aircraft.

Delta also plans to boost LGA-YYZ to six times a day this fall as travel restrictions lift and transborder demand returns.

Joe Esposito, Senior Vice President of Network Planning, Delta Airlines, said:

As demand grows, our commitment to Boston and New York is stronger than ever, which is why we’re continuing to invest in these communities to offer more nonstops and greater connectivity to top markets. While the global recovery from the pandemic is underway and more travelers take to the skies, Delta is ready to keep delivering the exceptional service and products that our customers expect.

Recently, Delta announced a new route connecting Portland with Seoul and New York-JFK with Dubrovik in Croatia. Delta had also announced new routes in the United States some time ago. The airline has also announced a new route to Greece as the European country is now open.
