PISA, June 5, 2014 – Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) today announced that it will resume its summer seasonal flights between Tuscany and the U.S. effective June 7, marking the only nonstop service between these cities. The flight will operate four times a week until August 31, 2014, using a Boeing 757-200 aircraft in conjunction with Delta’s joint venture partner Alitalia.

“Travel and trade between Italy and the U.S. continues to show positive growth with spending by American tourists in Italy up 11%,” said Patrizia Ribaga, Delta’s Sales Manager in Italy. “Pisa is a popular gateway for visitors to the Region of Tuscany over the summer period, and with New York also a favourite holiday destination for Italian tourists these nonstop flights make travelling between the two even easier. Since starting service between Pisa and New York in 2007, Delta has flown 270,000 passengers, three times the population of the city of Pisa”.

Delta’s nonstop service between Pisa and New York-JFK is scheduled as follows:

The return of Delta’s Pisa flight means the airline now offers up to 53 flights per week from four Italian cities – Milan, Rome, Venice and Pisa – to the U.S. 

Gina Giani, CEO and General Director SAT SpA said: “We are pleased to announce today the resumption of the direct seasonal flight from Pisa to New York for the summer season 2014. We have had a valuable partnership with Delta since 2007, and this flight to New York is once again a bridge between Tuscany and the world, benefitting tourism and the economy of the entire region. The nonstop flight lands at Terminal T4 at JFK in New York, one of the most important hubs in North America, and well-connected not only to countless international destinations, but also to destinations inside the U.S., such as Miami, in Florida, Atlanta and all the cities of the West Coast, including Los Angeles and San Francisco.”

Delta’s services to New York-JFK will be operated with a 167 seat B757-200 ETPS aircraft with 15 seats in BusinessElite, with passengers enjoying a five course meal with wines chosen by Master Sommelier, Andrea Robinson. Customers flying in Economy Comfort, Delta’s premium economy service, benefit from up to four additional inches of legroom and 50 percent more recline than Delta’s standard international Economy class seats, as well as priority boarding. Other product initiatives being rolled out across Delta’s international fleet include the expansion of Wi-Fi service by the end of 2015.
