Feb 7. Delta Air Lines is launching two new flights between the United States and South America, planning to fly non-stop to both Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro.
The airline will kick off the new flights with direct service to the capital of Argentina from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on Oct. 28, according to Delta. The new route, which will operate seasonally on a Boeing 767-400 aircraft, will add to Delta’s current service to Buenos Aires from its hub in Atlanta.
The route is still subject to government approval.
Then on Dec. 16, Delta plans to add a new route from New York to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. This route is part of Delta’s partnership with LATAM Airlines, which was approved last year.
That route will operate seasonally during the winter on a Boeing 767-300 aircraft.
