Delta Air Lines is adding flights from U.S. hubs to “top Caribbean destinations” this winter, including The Bahamas, according to a Delta press release, which explained that the airline is responding to the demand from its customers.
Delta is increasing airlift to San Juan, Puerto Rico; Nassau, The Bahamas; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
The company’s Managing Director for Latin America & Caribbean Luciano Macagno said the airline is looking forward to the move this winter.
“Responding to increasing demand from our customers, we look forward to adding more options between the U.S. and the leading business and leisure destinations in the Caribbean,” said Macagno.
“Just as importantly, our commitment goes beyond our powerful network, as we continue to invest in innovation and service to provide the best customer experience.”
The release explains that Delta will be adding a daily flight from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to Lynden Pindling Nassau International Airport (NAS). The Boston flights are currently on Saturday only.
“This daily seasonal service will be available until April 30, 2020 and will operate with a Boeing 737-800,” the release stated.
“Delta, Boston’s number one global carrier, has more than doubled the number of destinations and nearly doubled the number of departures it offers since 2015, including new twice-daily
service to Miami launching this winter and a U.K expansion coming in 2020.”
Director General of the Ministry of Tourism & Aviation Joy Jibrilu said, “Delta’s increased flights are a testament to the great synergy between our two cities and the convenience of this flight – Bostonians can fly away to paradise in around four hours – and we are so excited to welcome Boston-area travelers seven days a week to experience the beauty, culture and spirit of The Bahamas.”
