Delta to restart Brussels-Atlanta service in March 2017

After pulling out due to the unfortunate attacks on the Brussels Airport, Delta Air Lines has announced its Brussels-Atlanta service will resume from March 2017, doubling its network from Belgium. The U.S. airline currently operates a daily year-round service between Brussels and New York-JFK.

Delta Air Lines and the Delta Connection carriers offer service to nearly 370 destinations on six continents. For more information visit news.delta.com.

The service, which will begin on March 26, 2017, will be the only nonstop flight between the Belgian capital and Atlanta and will operate daily throughout the summer. From Delta’s two U.S. hubs – Atlanta and New York-JFK – customers will have a combined choice of more than 200 same-day onward connections throughout the United States, including the popular cities of Los Angeles, Orlando and San Francisco. All flights from Belgium are operated in conjunction with joint venture partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia.

“As Brussels Airport transitions all airlines back to the main check-in area, we are pleased to confirm we will reinstate our Atlanta service for next summer,” said Dwight James, Delta’s Senior Vice President, trans-Atlantic. “It has been a difficult few months for the local community but we remain committed to Belgium and showing our support by operating two daily flights, which will benefit both the travelling public and also the local economy.”

The schedule for the service between Brussels and Atlanta is: the flight DL81 departs Brussels at 11.00am and arrives Atlanta at 2.45pm, DL80 departs Atlanta at 5.40pm and arrives Brussels at8.20am (+1day)

The route will be operated using a 225-seat Boeing 767-300 aircraft. All flights from Brussels are equipped with Wi-Fi, allowing customers to stay connected at 30,000 feet, in addition to complimentary on-demand in-flight entertainment in all cabins. Movies and TV shows can also be downloaded to tablet and laptop devices.

Customers flying in Delta Comfort+ will benefit from up to four additional inches of legroom and 50 percent more recline than Main Cabin seats, as well as priority boarding. Furthermore, Delta’s flights from Brussels feature fully flat-bed seats in the Delta One cabin, with Westin Heavenly Inflight Bedding from Westin Hotels & Resorts and TUMI amenity kits featuring products by MALIN + GOETZ.
