Delta plans new daily nonstop service between JFK and Rio de Janeiro
Mar 24, 2017: Delta Air Lines will offer a new daily nonstop flight between New York-JFK and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, beginning December 21, 2017, subject to US Department of Transportation approval.
The airline’s strategic alliance with GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes will extend the reach of this service to 23 destinations within Brazil and provides seamless connections at Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport (GIG) in Rio de Janeiro.
The 210-passenger aircraft also includes 32 Delta Comfort+ seats and 143 seats in the Main Cabin. Delta's latest improvements include the introduction of new sleep kits and several other upgraded amenities for passengers seated in the Main Cabin on flights to and from Brazil. Customers flying in Delta Comfort+, Delta’s premium economy service, benefit from up to four additional inches of legroom and 50 percent more recline than Delta’s standard international Main Cabin seats; free beer, wine, snacks; and priority boarding. Other product initiatives being rolled out across Delta’s international fleet include the expansion of its Wi-Fi service.
“We listen to our customers and continuously strive to offer them increasingly convenient ways to travel, both for business and leisure,” said Luciano Macagno, Delta’s director-Brazil.
Elite customers and passengers flying in Delta One through New York-JFK and Rio de Janeiro-GIG will also enjoy a premium airport experience at the 24,000 square-foot flagship Delta Sky Club in JFK’s Terminal 4, and a recently opened GOL VIP lounge located in GIG’s Terminal 2.
