Delta Air Lines announced on Friday that they will be adding 13 new daily nonstops to Miami from hubs and corporate travel destinations including Orlando, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City and Tampa.
Today, Delta Air Lines announced the addition of 13 new daily nonstop flights to Miami International Airport (MIA) from hubs and corporate travel gateways across the U.S. The new service will help bolster Delta’s new industry-leading partnership with LATAM, linking North and Latin America’s premier airlines. Including the new service, Delta will now offer 41 daily nonstops from 10 U.S. airports to Miami. Most of the new flights will be operated with Embraer E175s, with some flights serviced by Boeing 737-800s. All aircraft will be configured with Delta’s award-winning First Class and Delta Comfort+ cabins. Delta’s existing relationships provide service to 12 global destinations from Miami and the LATAM partnership will provide ten additional international gateways for passengers traveling to, from or through Miami. In Friday’s announcement, Delta’s SVP – Network Planning, Joe Esposito said,
“As our new industry-leading partnership with LATAM develops, the announcement broadens our footprint in South Florida to provide our customers with better connections between the U.S. and South America. With this expansion, we are all now positioned to provide superior service and a convenient network for customers connecting between our airlines as well as for travelers going to and from South Florida.”
Delta and LATAM are co-located at Miami International Airport, allowing seamless and efficient transfers. Additionally, the new flight schedules have been coordinated to maximize connectivity between the two carriers. The Delta-LATAM partnership brings 435 worldwide destinations to the airlines’ customers along with an exceptional guest experience and reciprocal loyalty program benefits. Codeshare flights by LATAM affiliates in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru should be available during the first quarter of this year, pending regulatory approvals.
