Both services will be operated in conjunction with Air France-KLM under the Transatlantic Joint Venture agreement – and available through all the usual ticketing agents
The summer is a critical travel season as people jet off to other climbs for a break. Seeing these services is a good sign that Delta can look at these markets and move appropriately to them.
That and more direct routes are never a bad thing.
