Delta announced on Friday a brand new service from Los Angeles to Auckland, New Zealand, becoming the only carrier in the U.S. to serve this route next fall. They've also announced more routes to Europe. New transatlantic services will take travelers from New York JFK to the beautiful Geneva in Switzerland and from Atlanta to the coastal French city of Nice. The airline will also increase flights to Tel Aviv.

As part of the carrier’s strategy to expand and restore routes, Delta Air Lines also announced that it will resume flights to destinations that have not been flown since the pandemic. For summer and fall, the airline will be offering flights to different exciting cities in Europe that had previously stopped operating, such as Edinburgh, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Geneva, and Stuttgart.

Just a few weeks ago, Delta also announced fast and free wifi for passengers, and while this new service will begin on domestic flights, the carrier informed that selected international flights will enjoy this benefit soon as well, so travelers will have new exciting routes and services when traveling with Delta this year.

The new service between Los Angeles and New Zealand’s largest city will begin on October 28.

American travelers now have a great travel route to explore Auckland’s impressive skyline and also enjoy the amazing landscapes nearby. Conversely, for those who want to explore the old continent, the new destinations added by Delta are great opportunities for a unique Europe trip.

Delta customers can expect an enhanced service this year, especially those lucky passengers who get to enjoy the free wifi service on board and try the new routes available. A few months ago, the carrier also implemented a multi-modal travel system that combines flights with one-ticket rail connections to allow passengers to reach more destinations in Europe via its Air+Rail program. So this year, travelers will be able to have improved connectivity to transfer smoothly from airplanes to trains.

The Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) is the main airport serving the Research Triangle region of North Carolina.

Those who want to make the most out of their frequent flyer programs must remember that Delta made multiple changes to the Delta SkyMiles program, so earning points will be harder this year. Travelers must revise the new rules and stay up to date with the new system.
