Delta Air Lines is expanding service to two important cities to make travel between North and South America easier. The airline has increased nonstop service from its hub in Atlanta to Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport (EZE) from five times weekly to daily from Oct. 26. Furthermore, as of Oct. 29, Delta’s three-times-weekly service from Atlanta to Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport (SCL) in Santiago, Chile, now operates daily.
Delta’s new schedule includes over 2,300 weekly seats between Atlanta and Santiago and over 1,600 between Atlanta and Buenos Aires.
The Boeing 767-400ER (764), with 238 seats used by Delta for its flights to and from Argentina, offers service in Main Cabin, Delta One, Delta Premium Select, and Delta Comfort+. With a 339-passenger capacity, the route to Chile is flown by Airbus A350-900 aircraft and offers Delta One, Delta Comfort+, and Main Cabin.
However, the aircraft for these routes and their respective flight schedule are subject to change.
Rodrigo Bértola, Delta Director of Sales for South America, said:
“The increase to daily flights from Atlanta to Argentina and Chile makes it easier for friends and family to reunite for the upcoming holiday festivities and for leisure and business travelers to discover all that these two important cities in South America have to offer,”
On international flights between the United States and South America, Delta passengers will experience a comfortable journey that includes locally inspired cuisine and award-winning service from the airline’s cabin crew.
More Flights Between North and South America
Delta’s partnership with LATAM gives travellers access to more than 300 locations between North and South America (Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay).
“And thanks to our partnership with LATAM Airlines, our customers will have more access to award-winning customer service and more connection opportunities between the U.S. and South America. We look forward to introducing more South American travelers to the Delta Difference.”
Following the final approval of their Joint Venture from the U.S. Department of Transportation, the partners are collaborating closely to create a new level of connectivity between the Americas and the rest of the world.
With this approval, Delta and LATAM Airlines Group, LATAM Airlines Brazil, LATAM Airlines Colombia, LATAM Airlines Peru, and LATAM Airlines Paraguay can start working on bringing new customer benefits, such as improved service and expanded route options, to the fore.
