Delta Air Lines to resume nonstop Prague – New York JFK

Delta Air Lines seasonal nonstop service between Vaclav Havel Airport Prague and New York’s John F. Kennedy airport will recommence on Saturday 25 May 2013. The flight will operate daily throughout the peak summer season using a Boeing 767-300 aircraft with 209 seats in conjunction with Czech Airlines.

“We are delighted to see the return of our summer seasonal flight between Prague and New York, offering customers more choice, nonstop convenience and onward connections to more destinations in the U.S. than any other carrier including popular destinations such as Florida and California,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president of Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Demand on this route is high, particularly for our premium product, where our customers will see a number of new product and service enhancements onboard including a range of new in-flight amenities.”

In 2012, Delta carried nearly 100,000 passengers between the Czech Republic and the U.S. on its summer service, with an average load factor of 82% on the route.

BusinessElite customers will have the opportunity to experience Delta’s award-winning service, including innovative food offerings and original wine selections chosen by Delta’s Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. BusinessElite also features on-demand personal in-seat entertainment boasting more than 20 first-run and popular classic movies, a variety of television programs, thousands of music titles and a suite of video games. The aircraft is also equipped with Economy Comfort, Delta’s premium economy cabin product. Customers flying in Economy Comfort benefit from up to four additional inches of legroom and 50 percent more recline than Delta’s standard Economy class seat, as well as priority boarding.

Delta is making a number of significant investments in its products and services to improve its customer’s experience on the ground and in the air. These include Delta’s state-of-the-art, $1.4bn Terminal 4 at New York-JFK that will open on 24 May. Customers flying between Prague and New York-JFK this summer will benefit from a greatly enhanced airport experience on arrival and departure at the airport. One of the largest terminals in North America, Terminal 4 offers travellers a spacious environment with a wide variety of shopping and dining options. For BusinessElite customers, the Delta Sky Club at Terminal 4 features a Sky Deck – an outdoor airport terrace offering unprecedented runway views.
