May 31, 2016: Delta Air Lines, major USA airline, expands its route map with a new connection between Munich and Metropolitan Wayne County Airport in Detroit.
A 245-seat Boeing 767-400ER will depart daily at 10:15 am for Michigan’s largest city, where passengers can choose from among 113 connections to major cities in the USA.
The aircraft of Delta Airlines have been a familiar sight at Munich Airport since the new airport location opened in 1992. The US carrier departs daily from Munich to Atlanta, its home base that happens to be the world’s biggest airport.
