Delta adds winter flying from U.S. hubs to top Caribbean destinations

Delta will offer more flights to top Caribbean destinations beginning this winter, with additional service between four of its U.S. hubs and San Juan, Puerto Rico; Nassau, Bahamas; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.    

"Responding to increasing demand from our customers, we look forward to adding more options between the U.S. and the leading business and leisure destinations in the Caribbean," said Luciano Macagno, Managing Director — Latin America & Caribbean at Delta. "Just as importantly, our commitment goes beyond our powerful network, as we continue to invest in innovation and service to provide the best customer experience."   

Delta adds more than 3,000 additional weekly seats to Puerto Rico this winter

Delta will continue to boost connections to Puerto Rico with an additional daily flight between New York's John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) and Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU) beginning Dec. 21. This is the fourth daily frequency connecting SJU and JFK, and it will be operated using a Boeing 737-900ER with 20 First Class, 21 Delta Comfort+ and 139 Main Cabin seats.

Customers travelling between SJU and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport will also have more options this winter as Delta adds daily service from Dec. 21 through April 30, 2020. Delta will operate this route with a Boeing 737-800, offering 16 First Class, 36 Delta Comfort+ and 108 Main Cabin seats.

Earlier this year, Delta announced plans to upsize one daily roundtrip flight between SJU and Atlanta's Jackson-Hartsfield International Airport (ATL) to a widebody Airbus A330-300 aircraft, adding additional seats to the market for the winter season.

"The exponential year-over-year growth for Delta's service in San Juan is a clear indication that demand is on the rise and that Delta is equally committed to being part of Puerto Rico's promising future as a leading tourism destination," said Carla Campos, Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company. "We sincerely appreciate Delta's continued partnership, evidenced by upwards of 50 percent increase in total projected seat capacity for San Juan (January 2020)."

Additional Caribbean flights for Boston customers

Boston customers will have more options for travel to the Caribbean this winter. Starting Dec. 21, Delta is expanding flights between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Lynden Pindling Nassau International Airport (NAS) from Sat​urday-only to daily. This daily seasonal service will be available until April 30, 2020, and will operate with a Boeing 737-800.

Delta, Boston's No. 1 global carrier, has more than doubled the number of destinations and nearly doubled the number of departures it offers since 2015, including new twice-daily service to Miami launching this winter and a U.K expansion coming in 2020.

"We are thrilled that Delta is expanding its current once-weekly service to daily, non-stop service from Boston to Nassau," said Joy Jibrilu, Director General of Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation. "This is a testament to the great synergy between our two cities and the convenience of this flight — Bostonians can fly away to paradise in around four hours — and we are so excited to welcome Boston-area travellers seven days a week to experience the beauty, culture and spirit of The Bahamas."

Second daily flight connecting Atlanta and the Dominican Republic

Starting Dec. 21st, Delta will operate a second flight daily between Atlanta and Las Americas International Airport in Santo Domingo (SDQ), the capital of the Dominican Republic. This expanded service is timed to open up additional connectivity through Atlanta for customers travelling from the Dominican Republic, who will now have convenient one-stop access to more than 175 destinations around the globe.
