Delta Air Lines is to launch nonstop flights between New Yorks John F. Kennedy International Airport and Mumbai, India, and Accra, Ghana, effective 1 November and 11 December 2006, respectively.

The new nonstop service from JFK to Mumbai and Accra will be operated with widebody aircraft featuring Deltas refurbished business and economy class products. The 268-seat Boeing 777-200ER aircraft will be used to Mumbai while the 214-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft will fly to Accra. On both routes, customers will be able to enjoy Deltas award-winning BusinessElite service featuring all-leather sleeper seats with 60 inches of legroom, innovative food offerings designed by celebrity chef Michelle Bernstein, award-winning, original wine selections, and on-demand personal in-seat entertainment boasting more than 20 first-run and popular classic movies, a variety of TV programs, a broad range of music, and a suite of 12 video games. Economy class customers also will notice recent improvements on Delta, including new all-leather economy seats, enhanced food offerings and a complimentary cocktail with each meal.

With the start of this new nonstop service, Delta will discontinue its one-stop service to India via Paris-Charles de Gaulle. Deltas new nonstop service to Mumbai will replace existing one-stop service to Mumbai and to Chennai, effective 1 November. Delta will continue to serve Chennai with codeshare service via Paris on SkyTeam partner Air France, once codeshare approval is obtained. Additionally, Delta will offer direct, same-plane service between its largest international hub in Atlanta and Mumbai with these schedule enhancements.

To celebrate the new service, Delta is offering special low introductory fares to invite customers to try its newest international routes. Fares between New York and Mumbai are as low as $449 one way for travel between 1 November 2006 and 31 March 2007, while fares between New York and Accra are as low as $399 one way for travel between 11 December 2006 and 31 March 2007.
