Starting on May 26, 2016, Delta will be offering daily flights from Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport to Leonardo da Vinci International Airport in Rome, Italy, and six weekly flights from Detroit Metropolitan Airport to Munich Airport in Germany.
The Minneapolis-St. Paul-to-Rome flight will be Delta’s 10th peak-day flight between the United States and Italy scheduled for the summer of 2016. As for the Detroit-Munich trip, it will be Delta’s second daily flight between the United States and the German city.
The flights to Rome will use Boeing 767-300ER planes and the flights to Munich will use Boeing 767-400ER aircrafts. The new routes will be in conjunction with Delta partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia.
The two new routes announced Monday come after Delta already confirmed three other trans-Atlantic routes for next summer. In addition to flights to Munich and Rome, the company has added routes from New York City to Edinburgh, Scotland; Salt Lake City to London, England; and Raleigh-Durham to Paris, France.
Delta senior vice president Dwight James released a statement about the new routes:
“Our five new routes will complement our returning seasonal service for a full summer of trans-Atlantic flying in 2016. 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.”
