Delta Air Lines has expanded its East Coast airlift to Edinburgh, Scotland with the launch of a new route departing from Boston, along with extending current service from New York to offer year-round flights.
The daily flight to Boston Logan International Airport will operate throughout the summer and is the airline’s second route from Edinburgh. It complements the existing New York JFK service, meaning Delta Air Lines and its joint venture partner Virgin Atlantic will offers two nonstop connections between the capital and United States every day this summer.
“Delta’s new flight is the only nonstop link between Edinburgh and Boston. Having seen steady growth of customers on our New York service over the past three years, we are confident that Boston will be another popular destination providing more choice to our customers in Scotland and the United States. From our Boston hub, customers can connect onto 17 destinations with a short layover,” said Roberto Ioriatti, Delta’s v.p. Transatlantic, in press materials.
The new flight service will depart from Ediburgh at 10:40 a.m. and arrive in Boston at 12:40 p.m. or depart from Boston at 9:53 p.m. and arrive in Edinburgh the next day at 9: 25 a.m.
