Beginning March 31 Delta Air Lines will resume summer flight services from Marco Polo airport in Venice, Italy, with connections to JFK International Airport in New York and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Georgia, USA, starting May 16.
The daily flights will be operated in collaboration with joint venture partners Delta-Air France, KLM, and Alitalia. Once in the United States, Italian passengers will be able to continue their journey with connecting flights to around 200 destinations throughout the United States, the Caribbean, and beyond.
“Italy is the third largest market for traffic between Europe and North America, with more than 5,500 passengers transported each day,” commented Frederic Schenk, Delta Regional Sales Manager for Southern Europe.
“The summer months are traditionally a time of travel for the Italians, who [are] also from the Veneto region and neighboring areas set out to discover the United States and the American continent. Conversely, there are many Americans who choose Venice and its region for a trip to Italy, and Delta is proud to support the local economy every year, favoring the arrival of US visitors.”
