"Our five new routes will complement our returning seasonal service for a full summer of trans-Atlantic flying in 2016," said Dwight James, Delta's Senior Vice President Trans-Atlantic. "Detroit to Munich is important for our corporate customers, while Minneapolis-St. Paul to Rome is a strong addition to our existing hub service from Rome. Our customers can expect premium amenities and the best service in their travels across the Atlantic with Delta."
