Delta Air Lines launched new non-stop service between Bogota’s El Dorado International Airport (BOG) in Colombia and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on Dec. 21, connecting Colombia’s business center with the Big Apple just in time to bring families together for the holidays. New York’s No. 1 airline is operating service between Colombia’s capital and the Big Apple, home of the largest Colombian community outside  the country, with a Boeing 757-200 with 20 First Class, 29 Delta Comfort+ and 150 Main Cabin seats.

“The most rewarding part of working for an airline is being able to offer services that bring families together while providing them with a stress-free and entertaining flight experience, and this is what our new daily, year-round service will do just in time for the holidays,” said Ricardo Garnica Montoya, Delta’s Sales Manager in Colombia. “We want to thank our customers for their loyalty and wish each of them a happy holiday season and the best for the New Year. For 2020 and beyond, we look forward to providing business travelers, tourists and the Colombian community with award-winning service on this new route and to connecting points throughout the world from our New York-JFK hub.”

Delta has grown its presence in New York City by over 65% in the past 10 years and today operates more than 520 peak-day departures from its hubs at LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport – with more than 240 daily departures from JFK, including new service to Mumbai, India, which launched on Dec. 22.
