Delta to Fly Shannon – New York JFK for Summer

Delta Air Lines 2 

Delta Air Lines’ seasonal non-stop service between Shannon Airport and New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport will recommence on 11th May 2013. The carrier will have 2,300 seats weekly to and from the USA.

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.

“Our non-stop summer service increases passenger choice to and from the USA and the west coast of Ireland, supporting travel for thousands of holidaymakers and helping to give a boost to the local economy,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s Senior Vice President for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Delta is offering customers even more travel options to popular destinations such as San Francisco, Orlando and Las Vegas and we are already seeing very positive booking figures for the summer months.”

In 2012, Delta carried a total of 47,486 passengers between Shannon and the USA on its summer service, with an average load factor of 91% on the route.

Delta’s flight from Shannon Airport features 15 seats in BusinessElite. The aircraft is also 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% more recline than Delta’s standard Economy Class seat, as well as priority boarding.
