Delta has unveiled plans to launch daily nonstop flights
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.
