Delta Air Lines will add 13 new daily nonstop flights to Miami International Airport (MIA) from hubs and top corporate travel destinations around the U.S., including new service from Orlando, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City and Tampa.
With this expanded network, Delta will offer 41 daily non-stop options between 10 U.S. airports and Miami, with all flights offering Delta’s award-winning First Class and Delta Comfort+ product, in addition to the carrier’s signature operational reliability and industry-leading service. Delta’s partnerships today extend its Miami reach across the globe to 12 international nonstop destinations, with LATAM offering 10 additional international destinations from Miami.
In addition to providing Delta’s Miami-based customers with more options throughout the airline’s network, Delta’s new flight schedule will be timed to maximize connectivity with LATAM. The two airlines are conveniently co-located at MIA, allowing swifter connecting times for customers.
The new flights will be available for sale beginning Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020, and will begin operating by summer 2020.
Delta’s increased service into MIA is part of the carrier’s developing partnership with LATAM, announced late last year. This strategic partnership would bring together the leading airlines in North and South America, offering significantly expanded travel options for customers with access to 435 destinations worldwide.
Together, Delta and LATAM will create the most comprehensive combined carrier network throughout the Americas, carrying more passengers between North and South America than any other partnership. Customers will benefit from significantly expanded travel choices across the Americas and an industry-leading, increasingly seamless customer experience, including reciprocal loyalty program benefits. The enhanced cooperation is subject to governmental and regulatory approvals.
Delta and LATAM recently announced plans to launch codeshare sales for select flights operated by certain LATAM affiliates in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru beginning in the first quarter of 2020, pending receipt of applicable government approvals.
