“We are delighted to see the return of our summer seasonal flight between Athens and New York, offering customers more choice, nonstop convenience and onward connections to more destinations in the U.S. than any other carrier including popular destinations such as Florida and California,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president of Europe, Middle East and Africa. “The route is popular with both business and leisure travelers and we are already seeing very positive booking figures. This summer, our passengers will also be able to enjoy a range of new in-flight amenities, complementing Delta’s award winning on board service.”
Our BusinessElite customers will have the opportunity to experience the new Westin Heavenly® In-Flight bedding, designed and manufactured exclusively for Delta by Westin Hotels & Resorts. In addition, Delta has also introduced a new BusinessElite amenity kit featuring Tumi and Malin+Goetz products.
Nonstop service between Athens International Airport and New York’s John F. Kennedy airport will recommence on Sunday 2 June 2013. The flight will operate daily using an Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 298 seats, and will be operated in junction with Air France KLM.
In 2012, Delta carried over 125,000 passengers between Greece and the U.S. with an average load factor of nearly 85% on the route.
