Delta to expand in Boston with 5 new routes

Delta Air Lines made this announcement:

  • Introducing new service to Athens, Tel-Aviv, Baltimore, Denver and San Diego in summer 2022.
  • Welcoming new Airbus A321neos into Delta’s fleet with first flights out of Boston in spring 2022.
  • Offering more Delta flights from Boston than ever before – a +20% capacity increase from pre-pandemic height.

Five new routes and more modernized, fuel-efficient aircraft are set to debut at Logan International Airport in 2022, as Boston’s No. 1 global airline continues building up a premier hub and international gateway.

By next summer in Boston, Delta will operate up to 160 daily nonstop flights to 55 destinations, a more than 20% increase in capacity since our pre-pandemic height in October 2019. Including Delta’s partners, customers can connect to more than 150 cities across the globe.

NEW GLOBAL DESTINATIONS TO EXPLORE

Beginning Memorial Day weekend, Delta will launch new nonstop service to Tel Aviv (TLV) on May 26 and Athens (ATH) on May 27.

Both ATH and TLV will operate three times a week on the Airbus A330-300 and A330-900, respectively. Customers will have choice of four experiences: lie-flat beds in Delta One (A330-300) or Delta One Suites (A330-900); Delta Premium Select, which includes more recline and an adjustable foot and leg rest; Delta Comfort+; and Main Cabin. Each features personal seat-back entertainment screens to enjoy in flight and the J.D. Power-awarded care and professionalism of Delta people.

Delta J.D. Power Award
With an overall score of 860 out of 1,000, the airline was recognized as No. 1 in customer satisfaction among airlines in North America by J.D. Power

New Athens and Tel Aviv service will complement Delta’s existing flights to Amsterdam and Rome, and returning pre-COVID service to Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London and Paris.

While Delta will also continue operating Boston-Cancun next summer, customers can book this year’s warm winter escape with additional seasonal service to Aruba (AUA), Montego Bay (MBJ), Nassau (NAS), Punta Cana (PUJ) and St. Thomas (STT).

NEW FLIGHTS TO BOSTON’S TOP 20 MARKETS

Starting July 11, Delta will serve each of Boston’s 20 most popular markets nonstop with the addition of Baltimore (BWI) and Denver (DEN) – as well as introduce new flights to San Diego (SAN).

Baltimore flights will operate five times a day on the Embraer 175**, which offer 12 First Class, 20 Comfort+ and 44 Main Cabin seats with full-sized overhead bins, no middle seats and free Delta Studio content available for streaming on your device.

Both Denver and San Diego service will operate daily on the 180-seat Boeing 737-900 and 160-seat Boeing 737-800, respectively. Each will be equipped with Viasat-powered high-speed Wi-Fi* to deliver a reliable and streaming quality connection for everyone on board in addition to a wealth of premium seat-back entertainment options.

Delta is also launching new daily service to Charlotte and Dallas/Fort Worth on Oct. 10, delivering greater connectivity to major markets.

UEL-EFFICIENCY AND AN ELEVATED ONBOARD EXPERIENCE

As part of our fleet renewal plans, Delta will welcome the first Airbus A321neos into our fleet in spring 2022, with the first customer flights scheduled to depart out of Boston. Not only does the A321neo further elevate the customer experience, but the aircraft supports our carbon neutrality commitment as our most fuel-efficient large gauge narrowbody – achieving 12% better fuel efficiency on a per-seat basis than its counterpart, the A321ceo.

The 194-seat aircraft features thoughtful touches like a new First Class seat design to offer more privacy and a sturdier tray table, spacious overhead bins and state-of-the-art HEPA cabin air filtration systems, as well as access to Wi-Fi and power ports. All customers will enjoy the wireless in-flight entertainment system created by wholly-owned subsidiary, Delta Flight Products, with personalized entertainment experiences at every seat.
