Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will once again be offering nonstop daily flights between Nice’s Cote d’Azur Airport and New York John F. Kennedy International Airport for the 2015 summer season.

Flights will begin five times a week on March 29, 2015, increasing to a daily service from May 2, 2015.  Delta has scheduled a Boeing 767-400 aircraft with 245 seats on the route, which is operated in conjunction with joint venture partner Air France-KLM. From New York-JFK, customers can conveniently connect to more than 60 destinations, including San Francisco, Miami, Las Vegas and Seattle.

“At nine percent of global visitors, data from the Riviera Tourism Board reports that the U.S. is the second largest source market for guests to the region,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Delta is proud to continue to support the local economy with the return of our flights next summer.”

The Riviera Tourism Board also reports that 58 per cent of U.S. visitors travel for a holiday, with 20 percent in the area for business. The average length of stay for visitors travelling by air is seven days.
