Delta Airlines has officially launched the first ever operated service to Auckland, New Zealand, from Los Angeles beginning this fall and is also hyping it’s trans-Atlantic service from its New York-JFK and Atlanta hubs starting this spring.
“With more than 1,750 weekly flights to 85 destinations around the globe this summer, Delta is well positioned to deliver on its plans to fully restore its network in 2023,” Delta’s S.V.P. – Network Planning Joe Esposito said in a statement. “With brand-new flights this year to cities like Auckland, Geneva and London-Gatwick, we’re giving customers more options to enjoy the premium experience and elevated hospitality they have come to know and expect from us.”
It marks the company’s continued efforts to transform the LAX experience.
“LAX continues to grow its global network of destinations that are connecting Angelenos to every corner of the globe, and Delta’s addition of nonstop service from Los Angeles to New Zealand is in lockstep with the airline’s commitment to expand and improve service to our region,”Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer, Los Angeles World Airports stated. “Coupled with Delta’s international additions to Sydney and Tahiti, this is another exciting result of the ongoing and strong collaboration between LAX and Delta Air Lines as we connect more people across the Pacific and beyond.”
