Delta Air Lines is launching a pair of new routes and increasing service to two other Caribbean destinations this winter. Seasonal flights from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport (MSP) will debut this February.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and Antigua’s VC Bird International Airport (ANU) will see flights double to 2x weekly on a Boeing 737-800 with 16 First Class, 36 Comfort+, and 144 Main Cabin seats.
Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) flyers will see a new route to Turks & Caicos’ Providenciales International Airport (PLS) offered on Saturdays between February 17th and April 6th. The route will be operated with an Airbus A319-100. It offers 12 First Class, 18 Comfort+, and 102 Main Cabin seats.
Out of Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport (MSP), and in retaliation of a recent Sun Country Airlines flight, Delta is beginning flights to Grand Cayman’s Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM) on Saturdays between February 17th and April 6th. The route will be operated with an Airbus A319-100. It offers 12 First Class, 18 Comfort+, and 102 Main Cabin seats. As I wrote about last month, Delta is also adding seasonal flights to Turks & Caicos’ Providenciales International Airport (PLS). These will run on Saturdays (starting on January 20th through April 6th) on a Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 16 First Class, 36 Comfort+, and 108 Main Cabin seats. Finally, service to San Juan’s Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport (SJU) will increase from 3x weekly to 8x weekly from February through April. A Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 16 First Class, 36 Comfort+, and 108 Main Cabin seats will also be used on this route.
Anthony’s Take: When others launch routes from Delta’s hubs, the Atlanta-based carrier makes it clear that it’s their turf. With Sun Country Airlines announcing many new routes from Minneapolis (more here), it did not take Delta long to counter.
