Delta Air Lines is launching new flights from New York City to Bogota, the carrier said Monday.
The new daily service will launch Dec. 21 out of New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
“We are looking forward to providing daily nonstop service to the largest Colombian community living in the U.S.,” said Ricardo Garnica Montoya, Delta’s Sales Manager for Colombia. “The JFK-BOG route is important for Delta’s growth in the region as we continue to strive to connect Latin America and the world better than any other airline.”
Delta will be operating the service on Boeing 757-200 aircraft with 20 first class seats, 29 Delta Comfort+ seats and 150 main cabin seats.
The new nonstop flight will operate year-round.
