NEW YORK, May 23, 2008 – Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) announced today new nonstop daily service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Bogota, Colombia, starting Aug. 19.*
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) officially approved Delta’s new service to Colombia this week following preliminary approval in March. The new Delta flight to Bogota complements the airline’s existing daily service to Colombia from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Delta’s schedule between New York-JFK and Bogota starting August 19:
|DL 395||New York-JFK at 4 p.m.||Bogota at 8:55 p.m.||Daily|
|DL 396**||Bogota at 8 a.m.||New York-JFK at 3 p.m.||Daily|
To celebrate the start of the new JFK-Bogota service, Delta offers a special one-way introductory fare of $249*** for travel between Aug. 19 and Nov. 20, 2008. Round-trip ticket purchase required. Tickets must be purchased by June 11, 2008. Additional taxes/fees/restrictions apply. Details are included below.
“Our growth in the Americas and the Caribbean has been consistent, and now Colombian travelers are only a flight away from the excitement of New York City, where they can also connect to Europe, Asia, Africa or the Middle East via JFK,” said Christophe Didier, Delta’s vice president of Sales and Government Affairs for Latin America and the Caribbean.
As part of its rapid expansion throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, Delta this year also will start nonstop service from New York-JFK to Georgetown, Guyana, on June 1 and to Antigua and Barbuda on June 12.
