Delta Air Lines will add 13 new daily nonstop flights to Miami International Airport (MIA) from hubs and top corporate travel destinations around the U.S., including new service from Orlando, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City and Tampa.
With this expanded network, Delta will offer 41 daily non-stop options between 10 U.S. airports and Miami, with all flights offering Delta’s award-winning First Class and Delta Comfort+ product, in addition to the carrier’s signature operational reliability and industry-leading service. Delta’s partnerships today extend its Miami reach across the globe to 12 international nonstop destinations, with LATAM offering 10 additional international destinations from Miami.
According to the Senior Vice President, Network Planning Joe Esposito, “As our new industry-leading partnership with LATAM develops, this announcement broadens our footprint in south Florida to provide our customers with better connections between the U.S. and South America. With this expansion, we are now well positioned to provide superior service and a convenient network for customers connecting between our airlines as well as for travelers going to and from South Florida.”
In addition to providing Delta’s Miami-based customers with more options throughout the airline’s network, Delta’s new flight schedule will be timed to maximize connectivity with LATAM.
The two airlines are conveniently co-located at MIA, allowing swifter connecting times for customers.
The new flights will be available for sale beginning Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020, and will begin operating by summer 2020.
To celebrate, Delta will offer customers fare deals on flights to Miami.
Speaking on the development, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, said, “By expanding service at MIA, Delta Air Lines is helping us meet the growing travel needs of our community. These new flights ensure that Miami-Dade continues to build its reputation as not only a key destination for regional travelers, but also a critical gateway to the Americas and the rest of the world for international travelers.”
On his part, Director and CEO of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department, which oversees operations at Miami International Airport, Lester Sola, said, “ We congratulate Delta Air Lines on its new additional daily flights for MIA. We are incredibly proud of their growth and very excited for the opportunity to provide our passengers with greater connectivity along with enhanced flight options.
