NEW YORK, May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today announced new and expanded service to 10 popular destinations in the Caribbean, Bermuda and Florida from LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport, continuing its historic expansion in New York.

The new flights, which will begin in late 2012 and early 2013, are in addition to Delta's previously announced expansion at New York-LaGuardia, where the airline is adding more than 100 new flights to 26 new destinations this summer. When its full schedule is implemented, Delta will operate more than 260 daily flights between LaGuardia and more than 60 cities, exceeding any other carrier.

Delta also is optimizing its schedule at JFK to facilitate convenient connections to international flights. JFK is a major global gateway for Delta, which operates nonstop flights to more than 45 international destinations from the airport.

"We're excited to be announcing new and expanded service to these popular leisure destinations at the same time we're building our new domestic hub at LaGuardia Airport," said Gail Grimmett, Delta's senior vice president – New York. "It's another step toward achieving our goal of becoming the preferred airline in New York."

In conjunction with its expansion at LaGuardia, Delta is investing $160 million to modernize two terminals at the airport and construct a new walkway connecting the facilities. At JFK, Delta is currently under way on a $1.2 billion program to enhance and expand Terminal 4, adding nine new gates and creating a state-of-the-art gateway for New York's fastest growing global airline. That facility will open in spring 2013.

New and expanded service to the Caribbean and Bermuda includes:

  • New daily year-round service between LaGuardia and Bermuda.
  • New Saturday flights between JFK and St. Maarten.*
  • LaGuardia-Nassau flights will be expanded from seasonal to year-round service.
  • JFK-Montego Bay, Jamaica, flights will grow from Saturday seasonal to daily service.
  • JFK-Aruba service will increase from Saturday seasonal flights to daily year-round service.
