Delta Launching Premium Select to Santiago de Chile and Sao Paolo in 2020
Updated: Jan 11, 2020
Delta Air Lines announced Tuesday that they will be launching Premium Select on two Latin American routes from Atlanta in 2020. The new product will be included in Delta’s newly modified and upgraded Boeing 767-400s.
Passengers traveling between Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) and Santiago, Chile (SCL) or Sao Paolo, Brazil (GRU) will soon have a new seating option. Yesterday afternoon, Delta announced that their newly modified B767-400s will be configured with a Delta Premium Select cabin on these routes. Customers can now book Delta Premium Select seats for travel from February 5, 2020. Additionally, the cabin retrofit will include 31% increase in Delta One capacity. In Tuesday’s announcement, Delta’s Director – Hispanic South America, Central America and the Caribbean, Rodrigo Bertola said,
“Soon our customers flying to and from Santiago di Chile will have more cabin choices and the benefits of Delta’s continuous investments in its fleet and on-board experience. These new seats, based on our latest design, give our customers a luxurious experience, which is complemented by the refreshed amenity kits and the soon to be announced fall menu and wine selection.”
The modified B767-400s will replace B767-300s on the route and will also be fitted with Delta’s own inflight entertainment (IFE) system, designed by Delta Flight Products. The new system utilizes wireless technology and a state-of-the-art tablet which is fixed to the seat back, thereby reducing about a pound of wiring per seat. Situated behind Delta One, the Delta Premium Select cabin will have 20 seats in a 2-2-2 configuration with dedicated service, plated meals, Tumi amenity kits, and LSTN noise-cancelling headsets. The seats, which also feature a leg and foot rest, will be 19” wide with a 38” pitch and 7” recline. The IFE system in Delta Premium Select will also feature a larger 13.3” screen.
