March 5, 2007 – Delta Air Lines announced that it will relocate to Narita International Airport Passenger Terminal 1 North Wing, from Passenger Terminal 2, and will begin operations there on Sunday, April 1, 2007. SkyTeam Alliance airlines are also located in the Passenger Terminal 1. Eight out of nine SkyTeam member airlines serving Japan will gather in the same terminal at Narita. The move will enable customers of Delta Air Lines to enjoy an even more convenient service with reduced connecting times to flights operated by other SkyTeam Alliance member airlines.
The planned relocation of Delta Air Lines with Continental Airlines to Terminal 1 on April 1 will mark the gathering of all nine SkyTeam Alliance airlines, with Aeroflot Russian Airlines also planning to relocate to Terminal 1 at the end of June 2007. Delta Air Lines’ Crown Room Club and SkyMiles Platinum Medallion members will be able to utilize the Northwest WorldClub which is scheduled to open in late April 2007 at Satellite 1 in Terminal 1, regardless of the class they are flying. Passengers will be able to use a wide variety of amenities including complimentary drinks, snacks, and free wireless Internet access.
Delta Air Lines offers customers service to more destinations than any global airline with Delta and Delta Connection carrier service to 304 destinations in 52 countries.
