Delta Airlines has announced that it is expanding its European network with two new destinations for Summer 2023. In addition to this, the airline will also be resuming previously-served routes.
From New York-JFK
Delta will have its largest trans-Atlantic schedule ever from New York-JFK in Summer 2023 by offering more than 220 weekly departures to 26 destinations.
The airline will add a new destination in Switzerland to its network – Geneva – with nonstop flight from New York-JFK starting 10th April 2023. Delta will fly to Geneva for the first time since 1993. Also beginning on 10th April 2023 will be flights between New York-JFK and London Gatwick. London Gatwick is also a new destination for Delta.
In addition to this, Delta will resume daily flights between New York-JFK and Berlin on 25th May 2023. Delta will also add a third daily seasonal flight between New York-JFK and Rome in 25th May 2023.
New York-JFK is undergoing a $1.5 billion transformation as part of Delta’s decade-long $12 billion investment in U.S. airport infrastructure. The expansion will include a new Delta Sky Club on the A Concourse of Terminal 4 as well as a Delta One Club featuring a dedicated level of service that further elevates the lounge experience. Once complete in early 2024, all Delta operations will be consolidated into one terminal.
With approximately 800 peak-day flights, Delta is the largest international carrier in Atlanta, where the hub also serves as the largest global connector. And next summer, the airline will add 11 weekly flights to three trans-Atlantic destinations. They are:
- 3-flights-a-week to Düsseldorf starting 9th May 2023 (resuming the route post COVID-19)
- 5-weekly seasonal service to Edinburgh starting 25th May 2023 (a route not operated by Delta since 2007)
- 3-flights-a-week to Stuttgart starting 26th March 2023 (resuming the route)

Retrofitted A330s and B767s to Europe
The airline’s revamped Airbus A330 and Boeing B767-400 fleets offer a choice of four cabins: Delta One or Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin on nearly every flight to Europe. The airline says that passengers can look forward to several new experiential enhancements.
Delta One passengers will receive premium amenities such as artisan-made Someone Somewhere amenity kits, plush bedding made from recycled materials, more beverage options before takeoff, new cocktail bites, a chef-curated three-course meal and decadent desserts like a build-your-own ice cream sundae.
Delta Premium Select passengers can look forward to the recently unveiled upgrades to their in-flight experience. In addition to enhanced meal options, passengers will enjoy service touchpoints such as a Grown Alchemist scented towel, a special “bubbles & bites” service and a premium snack basket.
Meanwhile, Delta recently announced that it will launch new flights to Tel Aviv and Tahiti & also to Cape Town.
