Delta Air Lines is planning to launch nonstop flights between New York and Reykjavik, Iceland, beginning 1 June 2011.

The flight, between John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and Keflavik International Airport in Reykjavik, will be operated with a 170-seat Boeing 757-200 aircraft with 15 seats in BusinessElite and 155 seats in Economy.

The flight will also operate direct from Delta's hub in Minneapolis-St. Paul under the same flight number, with a stop at New York-JFK.

Delta's newest international destination from New York is part of its ongoing investment in the New York market, adding to the more than 40 new destinations introduced from LaGuardia and JFK combined in the last four years.

In recent months, Delta has added new or expanded service between New York and Amsterdam, Netherlands; Brussels, Belgium; London-Heathrow and Manchester, England; Shannon, Ireland; Stockholm, Sweden; and Copenhagen, Denmark. The airline has also announced new domestic services from New York, including new and expanded service to Nashville, Tenn.; St. Louis; Kansas City, Mo.; San Antonio; Cleveland; Charlotte, N.C.; Orange County, Calif.; Baltimore; Montreal and Toronto.

"Our new flight to Iceland is another milestone in our efforts to be the leading domestic and international carrier in New York," said Gail Grimmett, Delta's senior vice president – New York. "We have always prided ourselves in offering a large number of unique destinations from our JFK hub to provide customers convenient access to growing but underserved global markets. The addition of Reykjavik also marks the first service in Iceland for SkyTeam, the leading global airline alliance that includes Delta, Air France-KLM, Alitalia and nine other airlines."

The new Reykjavik flight will be operated as part of Delta's trans-Atlantic joint venture with Air France-KLM and Alitalia.
