Delta Air Lines Inc. is bringing back a long-dormant flight from Atlanta to the French Riviera city of Nice. 

The flight was last active in 2006, opening as part of a raft of European routes Delta launched that year, as Global Atlanta reported in 2007. 

The seasonal flight, operating daily starting May 13 and running through September, will complement service from New York-JFK to Nice, a popular summer destination for American tourists. 

With this service, Delta will offer 600 flights to 26 European destinations weekly. 

Nicolas Ferri, Delta’s Vice President for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India, said the enhanced access is also a boon for Europeans looking to reach Atlanta and other locales, both foreign and domestic. 

“Atlanta offers unrivaled travel options for customers wishing to do business, reunite with families and friends or explore more than 200-plus destinations across the United States and beyond, while both services will provide easier access for Americans wishing to visit France, helping contribute to the economy through increased tourism revenue,” Mr. Ferri said.
