North America: Delta Airlines Announces New Routes

New routes to Barbados, Puerto Plata, Mazatlán and more flights to Curaçao announced.

Delta is boosting its flights to Latin America and the Caribbean next winter, launching service from its Atlanta, New York-JFK and Minneapolis/St. Paul hubs to Barbados, Puerto Plata and Mazatlán. The airline is also adding more flights to Curaçao.  

“Delta is establishing vital connections from Atlanta and across the U.S. that allow our customers to reach their dream vacation destinations with ease,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Network Planning. “This latest schedule gives travelers unparalleled choice, with up to 1,000 weekly flights to distinctive places throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.” 

Delta will serve a total of 50 cities in Latin America and the Caribbean next winter. Linking these destinations to Delta’s hubs in ATL, JFK, and MSP allows for connecting access from nearly 200 cities around the world.  


Delta will launch daily service from Atlanta to Barbados (BGI) Nov. 23 and Saturday-only flights to BGI from New York-JFK beginning Dec. 21. From exploring the historic sites in Bridgetown to savoring the island’s delectable cuisine, customers can rediscover the vibrant culture and pristine beaches that make Barbados extraordinary.  


Beginning Nov. 23, Delta’s new daily service to Puerto Plata (POP) from Atlanta will allow customers to explore the historic Fort of San Felipe and vibrant Amber Cove. For travelers looking to relax and unwind, look no further than the golden beaches of Playa Dorada.  


Delta will introduce three-times-weekly service from Minneapolis/St. Paul to Mazatlán, Mexico (MZT), starting Dec. 21. From the iconic Malecón to the picturesque Old Town, customers can savor a taste of Mexico’s Pacific Coast like no other.  


In response to booming demand for Curaçao’s colorful architecture, crystal-clear waters and rich culinary scene, Delta is also increasing flights from Atlanta from Saturday-only to daily service beginning Nov. 23.  

All of the new and expanded routes will operate on Delta’s Boeing 737-800, offering First Class, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin options. Customers will soon enjoy an improved premium experience on this aircraft as Delta’s newest First Class seat – along with a range of other updates and enhancements – begins rolling out.
