Delta Air Lines will launch new flights from Boston Logan Airport in the summer of 2022 to Athens, Tel-Aviv, Baltimore, Denver and San Diego.
“We’ve strengthened our Boston hub as demand has accelerated, adding about 3,800 more seats a day by next summer than our last peak in 2019,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s S.V.P. – Network Planning.
“Boston is a fast-growing market with a booming economy, and we’re committed to offering customers significant choice and better convenience when making their travel plans, in addition to Delta’s superior products and experience.”
By next summer in Boston, Delta will operate up to 160 daily nonstop flights to 55 destinations, a more than 20% increase in capacity since our pre-pandemic height in October 2019. Including Delta’s partners, customers can connect to more than 150 cities across the globe.
“We are excited to welcome new Delta flights to Boston, connecting visitors and travelers to exciting destinations around the world,” said Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker. “These flights coming to Logan Airport in 2022 will allow more people to access hundreds of destinations and the global economy.”
Tel Aviv Starts in May
Beginning Memorial Day weekend, Delta will launch new nonstop service to Tel Aviv (TLV) on May 26 and Athens (ATH) on May 27.
Both ATH and TLV will operate three times a week on the Airbus A330-300 and A330-900, respectively. Customers will have choice of four experiences: lie-flat beds in Delta One (A330-300) or Delta One Suites (A330-900); Delta Premium Select, which includes more recline and an adjustable foot and leg rest; Delta Comfort+; and Main Cabin.
“Delta's fleet expansion at Logan is a big boost for economic development,” said Rep. Jake Auchincloss. “Massachusetts is a powerhouse of talent -- and we are stronger when that talent has more connections to the wider world."
New Athens and Tel Aviv service will complement Delta’s existing flights to Amsterdam and Rome, and returning pre-COVID service to Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London and Paris.
Baltimore, Denver and San Diego on July 11th
Starting July 11, Delta will serve each of Boston’s 20 most popular markets nonstop with the addition of Baltimore (BWI) and Denver (DEN) – as well as introduce new flights to San Diego (SAN).
Baltimore flights will operate five times a day on the Embraer 175**, which offer 12 First Class, 20 Comfort+ and 44 Main Cabin seats with full-sized overhead bins, no middle seats and free Delta Studio content available for streaming on your device.
Both Denver and San Diego service will operate daily on the 180-seat Boeing 737-900 and 160-seat Boeing 737-800, respectively. Each will be equipped with Viasat-powered high-speed Wi-Fi* to deliver a reliable and streaming quality connection for everyone on board in addition to a wealth of premium seat-back entertainment options.
As part of our fleet renewal plans, Delta will welcome the first Airbus A321neos into our fleet in spring 2022, with the first customer flights scheduled to depart out of Boston. Not only does the A321neo further elevate the customer experience, but the aircraft supports our carbon neutrality commitment as our most fuel-efficient large gauge narrowbody – achieving 12% better fuel efficiency on a per-seat basis than its counterpart, the A321ceo.
