Delta releases 2024 most-searched summer destinations

Delta is running its largest international schedule ever this summer – and our customers are ready to see the world.  

Ahead of Memorial Day, Delta released its second annual list of most-searched international destinations. Gathered from search data*, the list reveals cities on customers’ minds for summer travel between May and August.  

The top 10 list reveals that many U.S. flyers are seeking different cultural experiences in faraway settings, with Athens experiencing the highest surge (248% increase) in searches from last year. The ever-popular cities of London, Paris and Rome topped the list, along with Dublin, Barcelona and Vancouver, Canada as new additions this year.  

Searches for these top 10 international destinations increased more than 150% from 2023, highlighting the strong demand for international travel following the airline’s 11 highest sales days in its history, all occurring this calendar year.  

Here’s a look at the full list:
