DUBLIN, December 22, 2014 – Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will offer nonstop daily flights between between Dublin Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for the 2015 summer season.

Flights will begin five times a week from March 29, 2015, increasing to a daily service from June 1, 2015. The U.S. airline has scheduled a Boeing 767-300 aircraft with 225 seats on the route, which is operated in conjunction with Delta’s joint venture partners Air France KLM. From Atlanta, customers can conveniently connect onto more than 100 destinations, including Los Angeles, Orlando and San Francisco.

“Recent research from Tourism Ireland shows that the number of visitors from North America grew 13.9 percent in 2013 compared to the previous year,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Our seasonal flights from Dublin to Atlanta will complement our year-round service to New York-JFK and offer more travel options between Ireland and the United States.”
