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

Starting May 2, 2015, the U.S. airline has scheduled a Boeing 757-200 aircraft with 164 seats on the route, which is operated in conjunction with Delta’s joint venture partners Air France-KLM and Alitalia.

“Data from Failte Ireland shows 72,000 people from North America visited the Shannon region in 2013, spending more than €86 million,” 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.”

Of the 72,000 North American visitors, 63 percent were in Shannon for a holiday last year, with 8 percent travelling for business, according to the Failte Ireland research.

Delta’s Shannon to New York-JFK schedule is as follows:

Delta’s Shannon services feature fully flat-bed seats and a range of dining options in the BusinessElite cabin.

Throughout the aircraft, all passengers will have access to on-demand in-flight entertainment. Wi-Fi is also being rolled out across Delta’s international fleet with completion due in 2016.
