Our favorite destination Azores among Delta Airline new flights.
With Delta Airlines new scheduled service travellers now have a direct connection from New York JFK directly to this paradise in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Delta airlines will operate the service five times weekly and is the only scheduled service between New York JFK and the Azores’ largest city, Ponta Delgada.
Portugal is proving to be a hot destination for U.S. visitors this summer and Delta is responding by increasing capacity by more than 200 percent compared to 2017.
Not only is it launching service from Atlanta to Lisbon (right), it is also spreading its wings to the Azores for the first time, flying five times a week from New York-JFK throughout the summer.
Delta is the only airline to offer this route to the Portuguese island archipelago, which has much to offer including unspoiled beaches, Portugal’s tallest mountain, colonial villages and home-grown food and wines.
These routes complement the daily existing flight from JFK to Lisbon, which launched in summer 2017 and resumed on May 3 as a year-round service.
