Delta Air Lines is relaunching six of its Caribbean routes this summer, Caribbean Journal has learned.
Beginning June 5, the carrier will restart daily service to Grand Cayman from both Atlanta and New York-John F. Kennedy airports.
On the same date, Delta will also restart weekly Saturday service from both Atlanta and New York to St Kitts.
That’s along with twice-weekly service from Atlanta to both Roatan, Honduras and the Dutch Caribbean island of Bonaire.
“We’re looking forward to reconnecting more customers with their love of travel this summer, with more flights and convenient connections across Delta’s network,” said Delta’s Joe Esposito, senior vice president of network planning at Delta. “Our commitment to the health and safety of everyone on board always comes first, and those planning a summer getaway will also enjoy Delta’s unparalleled service across the journey from booking to baggage claim.”
All of the aforementioned destinations are currently open for tourism, with the exception of the Cayman Islands, which has not yet officially announced its tourism reopening date — although Delta’s announcement means that should likely be revealed soon.
The relaunched routes are another strong sign of Delta’s confidence in the resurgence of summer travel, a sentiment echoed by carriers like American Airlines and JetBlue, both of which are planning a continued Caribbean relaunch this summer.
“With these new resumptions and easy, convenient access through Delta’s hubs, customers have significant connection opportunities between the U.S. and the 40 destinations Delta serves across Latin America and the Caribbean,” the carrier said in a statement.
