travel: Delta Begins Countdown to First-Ever Nonstop Service Between

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

Passengers flying nonstop to Delta’s hub at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport will save around three hours in each direction when compared to the current one-stop service and six hours when compared to routes over Europe. They will also be able to make connections to 175 cities throughout the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean.

“Given the strong demand on this route, we’re upgrading to a Boeing 777 aircraft, which has more capacity and allows us to offer a greater level of comfort with full flat seats in business class and in-flight entertainment at every seat,” said Margaret Copeland, Delta’s sales manager for South Africa.

Delta, which also operates three weekly services from Cape Town, is the only U.S. airline to link Africa and the United States. By June 2009 it will operate from nine cities in seven African countries: Johannesburg, Cape Town, Lagos, Abuja, Nairobi, Dakar, Monrovia, Cairo and Accra.

Travel on Delta is available for booking via travel agents, Delta’s reservations team on 011-408-8200 (Johannesburg) or 021-425-7447 (Cape Town) or online at delta.com.

Delta Air Lines is the world’s largest airline. From its hubs in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York-JFK, Salt Lake City, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Amsterdam and Tokyo-Narita, Delta, its Northwest subsidiary and Delta Connection carriers offer service to 370 destinations in 66 countries and serve more than 170 million passengers each year. Delta’s marketing alliances allow customers to earn and redeem either SkyMiles or WorldPerks on more than 16,000 daily flights offered by SkyTeam and other partners. Delta‘s more than 70,000 employees worldwide are reshaping the aviation industry as the only U.S. airline to offer a full global network. Customers can check in for flights, print boarding passes, check bags and flight status at delta.com.
