Air France-KLM / Delta Air Lines Host Annual Summer Party

Friday night was party night at the Trinity City Hotel in Dublin as Air France-KLM and Delta Air Lines, partnered by Dublin Airport, said ‘Thank You’ to the trade at their annual summer party. Siobhan Scanlon, Head of Sales Ireland, thanked the agents for their great support for all the airlines, including Transavia, and for their contributions to the success of all four brands.

Increased frequency from Dublin to Amsterdam on KLM has been an outstanding success and Air France continues with five daily flights from Dublin to Paris CDG, she said. For many years Delta Air Lines has been a major player in the Irish market and the introduction of the seasonal Dublin-Boston service has been a positive move for the airline.
