Delta Expands Caribbean Flights

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 27, 2016

Delta Airlines has expanded its Caribbean network for the peak holiday season, the company announced this week.

The expansion focuses on the peak holiday period through the first half of January; Delta serves 26 destinations in the wider Caribbean region and includes a 15 percent increase in seat capacity.

“We are constantly reworking our capacity to best respond to our customers’ travel needs,” said Jose Pepe Zapata, Delta’s General Manager-Central America and the Caribbean. “But it’s not just about offering more seats—our customers expect punctual flights to and from their destinations and a worry-free travel experience from the very beginning of their journey. That’s why we strive to offer industry-leading reliability and better service during every stage of travel.”

The heart of the expansion is the addition of a second daily flight between New York-JFK and Nassau, Bahamas, along with an extra daily flight between Atlanta and Montego Bay, Jamaica (from four to five daily flights).

The increased capacity also includes a larger Boeing 767-400 for Atlanta Aruba flights, replacing the smaller Boeing 757-200.

Heading to Nassau? You may want to check out the Graycliff hotel and restaurant or try a stay at the Bahamas’ leading hotel, the One & Only Ocean Club.

Heading to Montego Bay? Your best bets this season are the one of our favorite hotels in all of the Caribbean, Round Hill along with Jamaica’s grand resort, Half Moon.
