MICHIGAN, United States, Thursday May 2, 2019 – This winter, traveling from Detroit to two destinations in the Caribbean will become much easier.
Starting December 21, the airline will expand its Saturday-only service to winter seasonal daily flights, offering more connectivity between its Detroit’s Metropolitan Airport hub and Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, Jamaica, as well as to Punta Cana International Airport in the Dominican Republic.
“We are thrilled to be able to connect our customers in Detroit with the Dominican Republic and Jamaica. Delta wants to capitalize on the surging demand to this important market and become the No. 1 choice for Midwestern travelers when flying to Caribbean hotspots,” said Rodrigo Bértola, Delta’s Director for Hispanic South America, Central America and Caribbean.
Both routes will operate with the 180-passenger Boeing 737-900 (739). Ticket sales for both routes open on May 11.
Recently, Delta expanded another service to the Caribbean with a weekly Saturday nonstop service between DTW and San Juan Luis Muñoz Marín Airport (SJU) this 2019 holiday season, due to increasing demand driven by Puerto Rico’s continuing recovery as a key business and tourism destination.
“Detroit has become an important gateway to connecting US travellers to the Caribbean,” added Bértola. “This Delta hub will offer more options to our clients in the region, building on our goal of providing the most convenient travel options through our powerful network.”
Delta operates nonstop flights from five gateways to both Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.
