Even though the 2022 summer season just officially ended, Delta is already dreaming of warmer days.
The Atlanta-based carrier unveiled on Friday the details of its transatlantic service for summer 2023, which includes a slew of added routes, including two new destinations for the carrier.
The expansion is largely focused on connectivity at three major hubs: Atlanta, Los Angeles and New York. In total, the carrier will fly 8% more transatlantic seats than it did in 2022.
Atlanta is Delta’s mothership — and the mega-hub is growing next summer with three long-haul route resumptions.
The first will be service to Stuttgart Airport (STR) beginning on March 26, 2023. This business-focused route connects Mercedes Benz’s and Porsche’s U.S. headquarters in Atlanta with their main offices in Germany. It was last operated in March 2020, according to Cirium schedules.
Next up, Delta will restart flights between the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and Dusseldorf on May 9, 2023. This three-times-weekly service last operated in March 2020.
