Delta is offering new non-stop flights to Europe from a number of US cities

US airline Delta is hoping to make transatlantic travel easier for jet-setters by adding a bunch of new non-stop flights to Europe from a number of American cities.

The new flights leave from Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta and Detroit, with other previously announced flights heading out from Orlando and Indianapolis. That means travellers from those cities can get to amazing European holidays destinations like Paris, Lisbon, the Azores, and Amsterdam – without suffering through those pesky layovers.

Los Angeles to Paris and Amsterdam

Starting on 16 June 2018, new direct flights will connect Los Angeles to Paris and Amsterdam. From there travellers can connect to more than 100 destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India with Delta’s partners, Air France and KLM.

New York to the Azores and Lagos

Next year, travellers leaving from JFK will be able to take advantage of a new seasonal flight to the Azores starting on 24 May. Delta has also announced that it will launch a year-round service to Lagos, Nigeria at that same time.

Atlanta to Lisbon

With Lisbon still rising as one of the world’s trendiest destinations, Delta will launch a new daily season service to the Portuguese city from Atlanta. The new flights will be on offer from 24 May to 4 September.
