Delta to Launch Daily Boston - Edinburgh Flights

Delta has unveiled plans to launch daily nonstop flights between Boston Logan International Airport and Edinburgh, Scotland, effective 23 May 2019.

The route will be the eighth nonstop trans-Atlantic destination from Boston on Delta and its partners during the summer 2019 season.

“Delta is Boston’s No. 1 carrier across the Atlantic, and we’re excited to be expanding our service to Edinburgh,” said Roberto Ioriatti, Delta’s Vice President - Trans-Atlantic. “Business and leisure travelers will both enjoy convenient nonstop service between Boston and Scotland, delivered with Delta’s unmatched reliability and renowned customer service.”

The new route complements Delta’s existing service between Boston and the U.K., which includes flights to London-Heathrow, offered both on Delta and joint venture partner Virgin Atlantic, as well as Virgin Atlantic’s service to Manchester.

Delta will operate the route with Boeing 757 aircraft equipped with 16 seats in Delta One, 44 seats Delta Comfort+ and 108 seats in the Main Cabin.

 Every seat includes access to Wi-Fi, free personal in-flight seatback entertainment screens and power ports as well as complimentary beverages, snacks and meals.

“Direct air links to the United States of America play an important role for Scotland’s economy, so I warmly welcome the announcement of this new service between Edinburgh and Boston,” said Scottish Government Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Michael Matheson. “Not only will this give Scottish businesses a direct route into important North American markets, but it will also give inbound visitors even more options when it comes to getting a taste of the world class tourism experience on offer in Scotland. I wish Edinburgh Airport and Delta every success with this new service and look forward to it taking off next year.”

Delta also serves Edinburgh from its New York-JFK hub.
