Delta Announces New Boston To Rome Route (And Other Big Expansion Plans)

If you’re a fan of Delta Airlines and/or have a few SkyMiles sitting around, you may want to begin preparing for 2020 as Delta has announced a new summer service between Boston and Rome and expanded flying from three of the airline’s hubs to popular trans-Atlantic destinations.


Last month, Delta announced the addition of daytime service connecting JFK and London-Heathrow as well as new service between Boston and both Manchester and London-Gatwick.

Additionally, beginning in 2020, all of Delta’s trans-Atlantic flights connecting LHR-BOS and LHR-JFK will be operated using the carrier’s newly retrofitted Boeing 767-400 aircraft, which features the new Delta One seats (not the old Delta One).


In 2020, Delta will launch a new trans-Atlantic flight from Boston to Rome (FCO), add a second daily flight to Paris (CDG), and add new service to London-Gatwick (LGW) and Manchester (MAN).


If that was not enough, in 2020, Delta will add a second-daily, year-round flight from JFK to Tel Aviv. This will be directly on the heels of their new service launch to Mumbai and Bogota in Dec. 2019.


If you live in or frequent the NYC area, you have probably noticed Delta a bit more as their presence has grown in New York City by more than 65% in the last 10 years. The airline is JFK’s No. 1 carrier, offering more than 200 daily departures to more than 100 worldwide destinations.

Unfortunately, for individuals that live in Atlanta (Delta’s main hub), it appears that you will continue to be neglected as there is not one new route from ATL.

It’s no secret that Delta is a force to be reckoned with and I look forward to experiencing their new international onboard enhancements soon.

What do you think about Delta expansion plans?
