ATLANTA, March 10, 2008 – Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) today begins new daily nonstop service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport. The new service complements Delta’s daily nonstop to Tel Aviv from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. "No U.S. airline covers Israel better than Delta,” said Glen Hauenstein, Delta’s executive vice president of Network and Revenue Management. “This new JFK departure provides convenient connections for passengers throughout the Northeast and Midwest and, along with the service from our international gateway in Atlanta, makes Delta the best option for any customer traveling between Israel and the United States.” Northeast and Midwest customers will find easy connections to the JFK-Tel Aviv flight from cities like Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
Delta’s new nonstop service between New York-JFK and Tel Aviv will be operated using 767-300ER aircraft with up to 215 comfortable all-leather seats in a two-cabin configuration. Customers flying Delta’s award-winning BusinessElite enjoy Delta on Demand featuring first-run and popular classic movies, music, TV programming and video games – all available on demand; a five-course menu including glatt kosher selections on flights to and from Israel; a reinvented wine program launched in February by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson featuring wines from around the world; new full-size pillows, duvets; modern and stylish dinnerware; and in-seat power outlets (110 Volt) that allow customers to recharge their laptops without the need for an adaptor.
The new flight to Tel Aviv is one of more than 15 new international destinations Delta is adding this year from New York-JFK.
