Delta Air Lines adds more key markets for Boston customers

Delta adds more key markets for Boston customers: Chicago, Cleveland, Newark and Washington, D.C.

Delta is Boston’s fastest-growing carrier by daily departures, and has more than doubled domestic daily departures in the last five years

Delta is expanding its Boston Logan International Airport service with new multiple daily nonstop flights to four top markets from Boston: Chicago O’Hare (ORD), Newark-Liberty International (EWR) and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) beginning Sept. 9, 2019, as well as Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) on April 1, 2019.

“Our Boston customers, especially those flying for business, want more ways to experience Delta’s award-winning service and industry-leading operational reliability to destinations they value most,” said Glen Hauenstein, Delta’s President.

“These new routes, along with our existing flights to San Francisco and Los Angeles, means that beginning next fall Delta will offer service to the five top business markets requested by our corporate customers.”

Delta’s investment in Boston Logan deepens

Delta and partners will offer up to 152 daily departures from Logan with these additions, an increase of nearly 30 daily departures compared to 2018.

Additionally, in partnership with Massport, Delta plans to assume operations at all gates at Logan’s Terminal A by the third quarter of 2019.

Delta also plans by 2020 the expansion of its Delta Sky Club near gate A18, including new showers, expanded seating and a reimagined food and beverage area.

“Delta is uniquely positioned to take Boston to the world in 2019,” said Charlie Schewe, Delta’s Director — New England Sales. “Our broad service and award-winning products in the airport and on board our aircraft further cement Delta as Boston’s No. 1 global carrier taking Bostonians to the destinations they value most — both domestically as well as internationally.”
