Delta Air Lines is planning a broad Caribbean expansion out of New York, Caribbean Journal has learned.

That includes three new routes and an additional daily flight to the region.


Delta’s new routes include daily nonstop flights between JFK and Kingston, Jamaica, along with new weekly Saturday service to both Antigua and Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

The new Antigua service will complement flights to the island from the New York area on American and United.

Additionally, Delta is expanding its Bahamas service with a second daily flight between JFK and Nassau.

The Sandyport Beach Resort in Nassau.

The expanded Nassau service will launch Oct. 1, the new Kingston flights will begin operating Dec. 20 and both the Antigua and Haiti flights will launch Dec. 22, according to the company.

All of the flights will utilize Boeing 737-800 aircraft.


Kingston, Jamaica.

“No one better connects the world than Delta, and the stunning destinations represented in Nassau, Kingston and Antigua offer our customers ways to experience destinations famous for snorkeling, diving and honeymooning,” said Agustin Durand, Delta’s General Manager for Central America and the Caribbean.

All of the flights have already launched bookings, Delta confirmed.
