ATLANTA, Jan. 8, 2008 – Eager to go snorkeling or scuba diving this summer? How about bird watching in the morning and sunbathing in the afternoon? Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) will continue to take travelers to more places in the Caribbean with new nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Antigua and Barbuda, starting on June 12.
Located in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, Antigua (pronounced An-tee’ga) and Barbuda offer excitement for travelers seeking the thrill of snorkeling or scuba diving among coral reefs. The islands also offer sheer relaxation to those simply wanting to enjoy sandy beaches and sun. The little island of Barbuda is a perfect spot for bird watching enthusiasts, as it has become a significant bird sanctuary in the region.
“Delta continues to be the fastest growing airline to the Caribbean. We have added more than ten destinations in the last two years,” said Christophe Didier, Delta’s vice president of Sales and Government Affairs for Latin America and the Caribbean.
