Delta Head to Moscow

Customers flying to Moscow now
have another convenient gateway in Delta Air Lines’ hub at
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Today marks the first
time any airline has offered customers non-stop service from the U.S.
Southeast to Moscow, Russia’s capital and key gateway to the 12 countries
that make up the Commonwealth of Independent States. Delta is the only
U.S. airline to serve Russia nonstop and also serves Moscow from its John
F. Kennedy International Airport hub. “Delta’s new Moscow service from Hartsfield-Jackson provides Russia-bound
customers from Atlanta, the U.S. Southeast and beyond with convenient
access to one of the world’s fastest-growing destinations for business and
leisure travel,” said Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin. “Georgia is located
in the heart of the Southeastern region of the United States, making
Atlanta an ideal international gateway city. We are thrilled to add Moscow
to our ever-growing list of international destinations and increase trade
opportunities for businesses located here.”

“The start of this daily service underscores Delta’s commitment to
international customers of providing extensive flight options to the
world’s most popular business and leisure travel destinations,” said Scott
Yohe, Delta’s senior vice president of Government Affairs. “It also
bolsters the status of Atlanta as a pre-eminent U.S. gateway for trade to
another new region of the world. We want to enhance economic growth and
tourism opportunities and strengthen cultural ties between the United
States and in Russia through business and tourism.”
