Delta highlights 15 years of uninterrupted service to Bogota, Colombia, with continued growth in the market. Delta will begin nonstop flights between Atlanta to Medellin and Atlanta to Cartagena in December, complementing its daily services between Bogota and Atlanta. Delta also has a Saturday flight between Bogota to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
"Celebrating 15 years of uninterrupted service with growth in the Colombian market underscores Delta’s strength in the region,” said Rodrigo Bértola, Delta director for Hispanic South America. “Delta strives to be the best U.S. airline in Latin America by providing a comprehensive route network that meets our customers’ needs. Providing services to two additional cities in Colombia will enhance travel options for our customers and provide them access to our strong global network.”
The route between Atlanta and Medellin will provide customers with one-stop access to more than 200 destinations from Delta’s largest hub, including key business destinations in Europe such as London, Madrid and Paris. The Atlanta-Cartagena route presents customers with access to the Colombian Caribbean and its coastal cities.
These services will be in addition to the daily nonstop flight Delta offers year-round between Bogota and Atlanta and to the twice-daily service during peak-days. Customers traveling to and from Bogota, Medellin and Cartagena will benefit from an enhanced experience at the Maynard H. Jackson International Terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, which features full Spanish signage throughout the airport. From its state-of-the-art terminal, travelers have access to Delta’s more than 1000 peak-day flights, including nonstop service to 61 international destinations.
“We will continue to build our momentum in the Colombian market thanks to our customers’ preferences, continued support from our travel agency partners and especially our Delta employees for their dedication and pride in serving our customers every day,” added Bértola.
