On Friday, Delta Air Lines announced an expansion of its winter service to Latin America and the Caribbean, offering new routes and increased frequencies to a handful of destinations. The Atlanta-based airline plans to add new service to Barbados, Puerto Plata, and Mazatlán from its U.S. hubs.

New Routes

Starting Nov. 23, 2024, Delta will add daily service from Atlanta to Barbados and Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. These flights are set to be operated by the carrier’s 737-800 fleet, which is set to undergo a cabin refresh.

Additionally, Saturday-only flights from New York-JFK to Barbados begin December 21. Three-times-weekly service from Minneapolis/St. Paul to Mazatlán, Mexico also starts on December 21. These new routes will be operated by the carrier’s 737-800 aircraft.

Increased Frequencies

Joining the new route announcement, Delta is also upping its Saturday-only route from Atlanta to Curaçao to daily service starting November 23.

“Delta is establishing vital connections from Atlanta and across the U.S. that allow our customers to reach their dream vacation destinations with ease,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President of Network Planning, in a press release. “This latest schedule gives travelers unparalleled choice, with up to 1,000 weekly flights to distinctive places throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.”

Overall, Delta will serve 50 cities in Latin America and the Caribbean this winter, with connections available from nearly 200 cities worldwide through its Atlanta, New York-JFK, and Minneapolis/St. Paul hubs. The expanded schedule features up to 1,000 weekly flights to various destinations in the region, according to the airline.
