June marks the beginning of first Delta flights to Kingston, Jamaica; Aguadilla and Ponce, Puerto Rico; Guayaquil and Quito, Ecuador

ATLANTA, June 1, 2006 – Delta Air Lines this month will further expand its fast-growing presence across Latin America and the Caribbean with the addition of nine new routes to seven destinations across the region. Five of the destinations – Kingston, Jamaica; Aquadilla and Ponce, Puerto Rico; and Guayaquil and Quito, Ecuador+ – will be served by Delta for the first time, while customers in Cancun, Mexico and Sao Paulo, Brazil, will enjoy expanded service to new U.S. gateways.

The expansion kicks off today with the first flights from Atlanta to Kingston and Aguadilla and continues through the month with new flights from Cincinnati, Boston, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.-Dulles to Cancun effective June 3; new flights between Atlanta and Quito/Guayaquil, Ecuador effective June 8; and Delta’s first nonstop service to Sao Paulo, Brazil from New York-JFK effective June 16.

“Delta intends to be customers’ airline of choice to Latin America and the Caribbean, and we’re well on our way to achieving this goal by expanding our Latin network with more flights to where our customers want to fly,” said Glen Hauenstein, Delta’s executive vice president – Network Planning and Revenue Management. “Delta is on track to become the second largest U.S. carrier in terms of destinations served across each region of Latin America and the Caribbean, with more growth to come. Since November, we have successfully launched almost 20 new routes across Latin America and the Caribbean and are seeing an extremely positive response from our customers for these new services.”

With the completion of this month’s expansion, Delta will offer customers more than 495 weekly flights to 47 Latin and Caribbean destinations from its U.S. hubs and focus cities in Atlanta, Boston, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, New York and Salt Lake City.
