Delta is making it easier for Bostonians to escape to warmer climates this winter.
The airline announced on Monday that it’s stepping up its service to Florida during the cold months. Beginning, Dec. 21, it will initiate a twice-daily, nonstop service from Logan Airport to Miami, and increase seasonal service to Fort Myers and West Palm Beach from once to twice a day and regular service to Orlando from three to four times a day. Delta will also increase service to Fort Lauderdale, Fla. from once to twice daily starting Jan. 6, 2020, and add more seasonal flights to Sarasota, Fla. on Saturdays and Sundays beginning on Jan. 11, 2020.
Additionally, Delta plans to add daily seasonal service rather than just weekend seasonal service to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic on Dec. 21 and increased seasonal service to New Orleans on Saturdays and Sundays beginning Jan. 11, 2020.
“Delta’s new nonstop service between Boston and Miami and their new daily frequencies to the Caribbean are exciting new travel options for Boston customers seeking more sunshine during those cold winter months,” said John Pranckevicius, Massport acting CEO, in a statement. “We thank Delta for their continued partnership and we look forward to the additional travel opportunities this will generate for New Englanders.”
The newly announced flights add to Delta’s recent growth in Boston, which includes daily, nonstop flights from Logan to Cleveland’s Cleveland Hopkins International Airport that began on April 1 and, starting on Sept. 9, daily, nonstop flights to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, Newark’s Newark-Liberty International, and the Washington, D.C. area’s Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Delta will also add two nonstop international routes from Boston to Lisbon and Boston to Edinburgh on May 23.
Delta and its partners will offer more than 150 daily departures from Logan Airport by March 2020, a 25 percent increase from 2019, according to Monday’s statement.
