by Adam

This morning Delta announced three new trans-Atlantic routes for summer 2017 from Boston and New York.

Starting May 25, 2017, Delta will introduce nonstop seasonal service between Dublin Airport and Boston Logan International Airport. On the same day, the airline will begin serving Portugal when it launches a daily seasonal flight between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Lisbon Airport, and will resume flights to Berlin with the launch of nonstop service between JFK and Tegel Airport.

The new Dublin and Lisbon routes will be operated on a Boeing 757-200 aircraft with 164 seats, while Delta’s Berlin service will be operated using a Boeing 767-300 aircraft with 225 seats.

“We are pleased to offer nonstop service from New York to both Lisbon and Berlin for the summer 2017 season, enabling Americans to enjoy two popular European destinations during some of the busiest travel months,” said Henry Kuykendall, Delta’s Vice President-New York. “Both cities have seen an increase in U.S. visitor numbers over the past several years, and Delta is pleased to help contribute to this growth through greater connectivity at JFK.”

This is very interesting, because Delta just announced they would be upgrading the 757-200 Trans-Atlantic that goes from RDU to CDG to a 767!
