Delta Air Lines Confirms Shannon – New York for 2013

Delta Air Lines LogoDelta Air Lines has confirmed that its seasonal non-stop flight between Shannon Airport and New York John F. Kennedy Airport will recommence from 11th May 2013. The flight will operate daily throughout the peak summer season using a B757-200 aircraft with 170 seats, in conjunction with Delta’s joint venture partner Air France KLM. The flight adds 2,300 seats per week to and from the United States.

“Shannon has long been a favourite destination for US holidaymakers and it makes sense to operate our service when customers most want to visit – during the summer months,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s Senior Vice President for Europe, Middle East and Africa.“Operating routes on a seasonal basis is a proactive and successful measure we have taken to protect our revenues by matching capacity to demand. We look forward to flying thousands of US tourists to the west coast of Ireland next summer, boosting the local economy.”

Delta’s flight from Shannon features 15 seats in BusinessElite. The aircraft is equipped with Economy Comfort, Delta’s premium economy cabin product. Customers flying in Economy Comfort benefit from up to four additional inches of legroom and 50 percent more recline than Delta’s standard Economy Class seat, as well as priority boarding.

Other product initiatives being rolled out across Delta’s international fleet include the expansion of wi-fi service from 2013. The introduction of wi-fi on Delta-operated flights between Ireland and the USA will enable customers to get online throughout their journey. Delta will also open their new state-of-the-art facility at Terminal 4 at New York JFK in May 2013, facilitating improved connections on to over 55 destinations in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean.
