Fresh off its new planned service from New York to the Caribbean, Delta Air Lines is resuming its routes from the Northeast.
Delta is relaunching five new seasonal routes to the Caribbean out of Boston this winter, including new weekly flights to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic; Nassau, The Bahamas; Turks and Caicos; Aruba; and Montego Bay, Jamaica.
All of the flights will begin service on Dec. 22, 2018.
“It’s thrilling to offer more connections between Boston and the Caribbean, a favorite destination of U.S. customers because of its beaches, culture and biodiversity,” said Agustin Durand, General Manager – Central America and Caribbean at Delta Air Lines. “Whether you prefer to tan in legendary beaches like Punta Cana, Eagle Beach, Taylor Bay and Junkanoo Beach, go river rafting in Martha Brae, or visit local museums and historic centers, we are thrilled to be able to connect our customers in Boston with these iconic Caribbean destinations.”
The relaunched flights come as Delta recently announced new flights from New York to four Caribbean destinations.
“We are committed to offering our Boston customers thoughtful service at every touch point, including excellent airport customer service, industry-leading operational reliability and two Delta Sky Clubs at Logan International,” said Charlie Schewe, Director – New England Sales at Delta. “We look forward to an outstanding schedule this winter for our Boston customers offering over 100 peak-day round-trip flights to more than 35 destinations.”
All of the new Boston-Caribbean flights will operate weekly on Saturdays, according to the carrier.
The carrier will be using several different aircraft for the routes; a Boeing 737-800 to Punta Cana, an Embraer 175 to Nassau; Airbus A319 to Turks and Caicos; a Boeing 737-900 to Aruba and an Airbus A320 to Montego Bay.
All of the flights will include the option of Delta’s new Comfort+ seats, along with the company’s Delta Studio on-demand entertainment and optional high-speed Wi-Fi.
