Delta Air Lines is adding another new international route from Boston, with a daily nonstop flight from Boston Logan International Airport to Edinburgh, Scotland, next summer.
The route will be the eighth nonstop trans-Atlantic destination from Boston on Delta and its partners during the summer 2019 season.
The new route complements Delta’s existing service between Boston and the U.K., which includes flights to London-Heathrow, offered both on Delta and joint venture partner Virgin Atlantic, as well as Virgin Atlantic’s service to Manchester.
The flying will operate on the following schedule effective May 23:
Boston Logan International Airport – Edinburgh Airport
- Departs BOS at 10:15 p.m.
- Arrives EDI at 9:25 a.m. (next day)
Edinburgh Airport – Boston Logan International Airport
- Departs EDI at 10:55 a.m.
- Arrives BOS at 1:02 p.m.
The onboard Delta experience will be on Boeing 757 aircraft equipped with 16 seats in Delta One, 44 seats Delta Comfort+ and 108 seats in the Main Cabin. Every seat includes access to Wi-Fi, free personal in-flight seatback entertainment screens and power ports as well as complimentary beverages, snacks and meals.
Edinburgh service follows recently announced nonstop service from Boston to Lisbon. Meanwhile, Delta’s Dublin service, which debuted in 2017, will operate on larger 767-300ER aircraft in 2019 due to increased demand.
Along with its partners, Delta operates 118 peak-day departures from Boston, an increase of 12 departures compared with 2017 and up 32 departures over 2016. Earlier this month, Delta marked its 49th and 50th nonstop destinations from Boston to Las Vegas and Philadelphia respectively – up from just 32 destinations from Boston in 2016.
Delta will serve a total of 16 international destinations from Boston in 2019. Additional Boston service enhancements made in 2018 include new service to Charleston, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Savanah; additional flights to top business markets Jacksonville, Atlanta, Tampa, Kansas City, Nashville, and Pittsburgh; and continued leisure expansion with new Saturday service to Aruba, marking Delta’s sixth destination in the Caribbean from Boston. Delta’s partner Virgin Atlantic offers service to London-Heathrow; partner KLM will begin nonstop Amsterdam service in March; and partner Korean Air will begin service to Seoul-Incheon in April.
Delta also serves Edinburgh from its New York-JFK hub.
