Delta Air Lines expands its European network for the 2023 summer boreal season with 9 routes and two new destinations including Geneva (GVA), where the airline’s last service to that city was in 1993. The airline is adding 8% more seats on its transatlantic flights compared to summer 2022.

Much of the new service is from its major transatlantic hubs including Atlanta (ATL) and New York (JFK), plus it will reconnect Los Angeles (LAX) to the Old Continent. Delta’s last nonstop service between Europe and LAX was completed in March 2020.

«Next summer, Delta will provide customers with greater access to popular destinations across the transatlantic and continue to solidify its position as the number one airline in New York,» said Joe Esposito, Delta’s senior vice president of network planning.

«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 unparalleled travel to enjoy across the pond,» he added.
