Delta introduced these additional flights as a response to an increased demand for more connections between New York and destinations in the Caribbean.
New and expanded service to the Caribbean and Bermuda includes new Saturday flights with year-round service between JFK and St. Maarten; JFK-Montego Bay, Jamaica, flights will grow from Saturday seasonal to daily year-round service; JFK-Aruba service will increase from Saturday seasonal flights to daily year-round service; JFK-Punta Cana service will increase from Saturday seasonal flights to daily year-round service; and new daily year-round service between LaGuardia and Bermuda.
Delta also is optimizing its schedule at JFK to facilitate convenient connections to international flights. JFK is a major global gateway for Delta, with more than 136 peak-day departures to 82 worldwide destinations.
Delta is part of a $1.2 billion project to expand JFK’s Terminal 4 by one-third, creating a state-of-the-art international gateway.
That facility will open in spring 2013. In addition to expansion at JFK, Delta is investing $160 million to modernize and connect Terminals C and D at LaGuardia airport with work on a connector bridge between the two expected to be completed by the end of 2012. Delta now provides service to more destinations from New York-LaGuardia and New York-JFK combined than any other airline.
