Delta to add Cayman flight

| 05/08/2008

(CNS): Despite fuel costs and the falling profits in the industry Delta Air Lines has announced its intention to increase frequencies to its current seven Caribbean destinations to satisfy what it described as the rising demand for sunshine vacations, the airline said.  From 20 December it will add nonstop service from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to Aruba, George Town, Montego Bay Providenciales, Punta Cana and St. Maarten.

Delta also will add four weekly flights between Atlanta and St. Thomas starting on the 18 December. The extra flight to Grand Cayman will be on Saturdays.

"The Caribbean is a perennial favourite spot for tourists during the winter months, and Delta is making it easier and more convenient for customers to reach their preferred beach destination," said Miguel Lopez, regional director of Sales for Central America and the Caribbean for Delta.

The airline also said it intended to inaugurate new year-round nonstop service between some Caribbean destinations and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).

Delta Air Lines currently operates 393 weekly flights to 47 destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean.
