Delta Air Lines to Launch New Flights to Greece
Delta Air Lines will be the first airline to resume service to Athens International Airport (ATH) from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) starting May 28. Besides residents of the tri-state area, the nonstop daily service will provide a convenient connection for travelers from 44 U.S. cities to one of the highest demand leisure markets in Europe open to travelers.
“Customers are eager to reclaim their lives and for many that means traveling again,” said Joe Esposito, S.V.P. – Network Planning, in the press release. “Outdoor-friendly destinations like Greece are particularly in demand and flying Delta means you can continue to expect award-winning hospitality with new services to make the entire journey more enjoyable, simple and stress-free.”
Customers traveling to Greece from the U.S. will be welcome to visit as tourists and will no longer be subject to quarantine requirements if they show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test issued up to 72 hours before arrival.
On July 2, the airline will also launch new daily nonstop service between Athens International and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, which provides connection opportunities from 143 cities across the country. Delta will also resume and expand its flights to Reykjavík, Iceland for vaccinated travelers, with new service from Boston and returning service from JFK and Minneapolis/St. Paul starting next month.
All flights to Greece from New York City and Atlanta will be serviced by a 293-seat Airbus A330, which is equipped with Wi-Fi and features Delta One full-flat beds, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin service. The routes will be operated in conjunction with partners Air France, KLM and Virgin Atlantic.
