Delta customers soon will
have more access to India with new, planned daily service between New
York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Chennai (Madras), India,
with a stop at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle International Airport, beginning
May 9. Customers will benefit from the service and experience of the only U.S.
carrier serving two cities in India, Mumbai and Chennai. Expanding
international service is a key element of Delta’s transformation plan,
which will provide customers more access to the world.
“Customers in the United States and France now have direct access to one
of the fastest growing service and technology centers in India,” said Doug
Blissit, vice president-Network Planning. “This new flight gives our
customers in India more choices for international travel via two
significant gateways—Paris-Charles de Gaulle and New York-JFK. These
cities offer travelers hundreds of convenient connections to destinations
across Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and the United States.”
Delta currently offers passengers daily New York-Paris-Mumbai flights and
daily seasonal service from New York-Frankfurt-Mumbai.
The new service will feature the Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, featuring
Delta’s award-winning BusinessElite(R) service with seats in a 2x2x2
configuration and 60 inches of pitch.
