Delta Relaunches Flights From Tampa To Amsterdam

Delta Air Lines has announced that it will resume flying between Tampa and Amsterdam later this year, bringing its total number of routes to the Dutch city to ten.

Details: Delta’s New Tampa–Amsterdam Route

Daily flights between Tampa International Airport and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol  are scheduled to begin on October 26, 2024. The route will be a winter seasonal service, with an end date of March 29, 2025.

Delta will deploy its Airbus A330-300 aircraft on the route. The route will be a service resumption, with Delta last flying nonstop between Tampa and Amsterdam in summer 2019.

The fact that the route is being introduced as a seasonal winter service suggests that Delta foresees strong demand from European residents. Although travel demand to Europe is strong among American travelers in the summer, there is significant demand for westbound travel from Europe to Florida in the winter months, as the Sunshine State is seen as a leisure destination for its warmer weather and pristine beaches.

Four other airlines currently offer transatlantic service from Tampa: British Airways flies to London’s Gatwick Airport, Discover Airlines flies to Frankfurt, Edelweiss Air flies to Zurich and Virgin Atlantic flies to London’s Heathrow Airport. As a result, the prominent SkyTeam carrier’s resumption of this route will compete with other carriers across the Atlantic.

Delta’s Expanding Transatlantic Network

Delta’s flights from Tampa to Amsterdam will be its tenth route to the Netherlands’ largest city. The Atlanta-based carrier currently offers year-round flights from Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City and New York’s John F.Kennedy International Airport to Amsterdam. The airline also has a winter seasonal route between Amsterdam and Orlando.

Amsterdam serves as a major European connecting hub for Delta passengers, due to the airline’s transatlantic joint venture with SkyTeam partners Air France–KLM and Virgin Atlantic. With Amsterdam being KLM’s home base and main hub, many Delta passengers who fly to the airport from the United States connect onto KLM flights to other European destinations and beyond. The SkyTeam hub is Delta’s most-served airport in Europe.
