Delta Air Lines is launching new non-stop routes from JFK-New York and Atlanta international airports to Sir Grantley Adams International Airport in Barbados, starting on December 4th, 2014.
The new services will be operated using a Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 160 seats, including 16 seats in Business class, 18 Economy Comfort seats and 126 seats in Economy.
Delta’s new routes highlight its growth in the Caribbean by offering more options to connect main tourism destinations with its international hubs in the United States.
“We continue to expand our presence in the Caribbean to offer customers the most convenient connection options for them to fly to their favourite tourist destinations,” said Maria Fernanda Price, Delta’s regional manager for the Caribbean.
“We listen to our customers and work diligently to meet their expectations by offering new routes, and also enhanced onboard services to provide them with the best in flight experience.”
Delta has invested $3 billion over the last two years to enhance customer experience at all levels.
Some of these investments include the new international terminals in Atlanta and JFK, as well as the remodelling of its fleet to include the popular Economy Comfort seats on flights to and from the Caribbean, to offering complimentary light meals in the Economy cabin on selected routes to the Caribbean, as well as expanding its state-of-the-art entertainment system with a library of over 250 movies, 100 TV programs, 50 hours of HBO, video games and kid-friendly programming.
