Delta Air Lines confirmed on 11 December that its seasonal nonstop flight between Athens Eleftherios Venizelos Airport and New York JFK will recommence, effective 18 May 2014.

The flight will operate daily throughout the summer season using an Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 292 seats in conjunction with Delta’s joint venture partner Air France KLM and Alitalia.

“Delta offers customers from Athens increased choice flying to the United States by offering our service when customers most want to visit – during the peak summer months,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
