Delta Air Lines is increasing its year-round or seasonal service from Boston Logan International Airport to seven destinations, including year-round flights in three new markets.
Among the new services are year-round daily flights to Jacksonville in Florida and Richmond in Virginia. The flights will be operated by Delta Connection carrier Endeavor Air (formerly known as Pinnacle Airlines before it became a Delta subsidiary on May 1) using 76-seat, two-class Bombardier CRJ900 regional jets.
These services will respectively begin on March 3 and March 6, 2014.
Delta Air Lines will also offer new service from Boston to Las Vegas. The carrier will operate three round-trips per week with Boeing 737-800 jets from March 6.
Additionally, Delta will expand its service between Boston Logan International Airport and Los Angeles, adding one additional daily flight for a total of two daily round-trips. The new flight will begin on April 7 and will be operated by a Boeing 737-800.
Delta will also offer new Saturday-only summer seasonal service to Nassau in The Bahamas and Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands, beginning on March 8.
The Nassau flights will be operated by Delta Connection carrier Shuttle America using 76-seat, two-class Embraer 175 regional jets, while Delta itself will operate the Providenciales service using Airbus A320 equipment.
Delta has also extended the duration of its seasonal service between Boston and Cancun. This was previously scheduled to end on April 26 but will now end on August 30, 2014.
“We continue to see a growing demand in Boston and increased flights next year will give our customers more direct service at more convenient times,” says Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s senior vice president – network planning.
Delta and joint venture partner Virgin Atlantic Airways recently announced they would coordinate schedules and re-time their respective Boston-London Heathrow flights to offer customers more convenient and flexible travel options.
Atlanta-based Delta currently operates 70 peak-day departures from Boston Logan International Airport, offering non-stop service to 16 destinations.
