Delta announces its largest 2023 summer schedule to New York-JFK in Delta’s history, and more routes to Europe from Atlanta and L.A.

Delta Air Lines has made this announcement:

Customers looking to get an early start to their summer 2023 vacation planning will find that Delta is expanding its service across the trans-Atlantic, with 8% more seats than summer 2022. The airline will offer seven new flights (in addition to the resumption of service to Stuggart and Berlin, both currently out for sale), including nonstop service to Geneva, Switzerland, for the first time since 1993, and long-haul service from Los Angeles to London-Heathrow and Paris.  

“Next summer, Delta will give customers expanded access to popular destinations across the trans-Atlantic, continuing to solidify its position as the number-one carrier in New York,” said Delta’s Senior Vice President of Network Planning Joe Esposito. “With nearly 620 weekly flights and connectivity to 32 destinations in Europe and beyond, customers will have a wealth of iconic destinations to explore and an unmatched journey to enjoy across the pond.” 

NEW AND NEVER-BEFORE-FLOWN FLIGHTS FROM DELTA’S MAJOR GLOBAL HUBS 

New York

To bolster Delta’s No. 1 domestic position in New York City, the airline will deliver its largest trans-Atlantic schedule ever from JFK next summer by offering more than 220 weekly departures to 26 destinations, including new daily service to:  

  • Geneva beginning on April 10 (flying for the first time since 1993).  
  • London-Gatwick beginning on April 10.  
  • Resumption of daily service to Berlin on May 25. 

Additionally, Delta will add a third seasonal flight to Rome beginning May 25, operating daily. 

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, enabling a more convenient travel experience for customers.  

Atlanta 

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 including:  

  • Three-times-weekly service to Dusseldorf beginning on May 9 (restarting the route post-pandemic). 
  • Five-times-weekly seasonal service to Edinburgh beginning on May 25 (a route not operated since 2007).  
  • Resumption of three-times weekly service to Stuttgart beginning on March 26. 

Los Angeles 

As LAX’s largest global airline, Delta prides itself on providing Angelenos with unparalleled global access by flying to places like Tahiti. Summer 2023 will build on this excitement by relaunching service to cities that haven’t been serviced in years including adding daily service to:   

  • Paris beginning on May 8 (restarting the route post-pandemic). 
  • London-Heathrow beginning on March 25 (a route not operated since 2015).
