Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc. and Air France-KLM S.A. are teaming up to offer new flights to Europe out of Miami and Orlando, Fla.
On March 26, Delta launched a daily nonstop service between Miami and London‘s Heathrow Airport. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines began a new nonstop flight offered four times a week between Miami and its hub in Amsterdam on March 27.
This June, Air France will launch a nonstop service three days a week between Orlando and its hub in Paris.
The new flights are part of an agreement between Delta, Air France-KLM and the Italian airline Alitalia that allows the airlines to coordinate flights and share costs and revenues.
Glen Hauenstein, Delta’s executive vice president of network planning, revenue management and marketing, said the joint venture will increase Florida‘s access to certain European cities.
“The power of our successful joint venture allows Delta, Air France and KLM to embark on this significant international expansion in Florida … Our new nonstop service will provide an economic boost on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Mr. Hauenstein in a news release.
Delta also began new nonstop service between Miami and Jacksonville, Fla., and between Orlando and Tampa, Fla., on March 26.
