Delta Air Lines has a stacked schedule to make it easier for travelers to get to Italy, with several new routes to Venice ahead of the summer.

By the end of this month, Delta will relaunch nonstop service between its New York-JFK gateway and Venice Marco Polo Airport on a Boeing 767-300, configured with Delta One, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+, and Main Cabin seats, the airline announced this week. This seasonal route will be operated daily through the end of October before being reduced to a 5x/weekly schedule.

In addition, Delta will introduce two daily flights between its main hub in Atlanta and Venice this summer, giving U.S. travelers more options than ever to get to the City of Canals. These new routes are all bookable on Delta’s website and mark a total of 17 weekly flights between the U.S. and Venice this summer.

“As one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice is hugely popular with U.S. travelers, and our flights bring valuable tourism and trade opportunities to the city and the region as well as unrivaled opportunities for Venetians looking to explore destinations across the Americas,” Delta’s senior vice president for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India, Matteo Curcio, said in a statement. “We’re glad to offer customers increased choice this summer with flights from New York and additional service from Atlanta.”

The announcement comes as Delta plots its largest transatlantic schedule for Summer 2024 with a particular emphasis on Italy, operating nonstop routes to four cities: Milan, Naples, Rome, and Venice. With its European alliance partners Air France and Virgin Atlantic, Delta will be able to codeshare these new services to connect travelers from hundreds of cities worldwide to Italy.

Travelers flying in premium cabins can look forward to Delta’s newest airport lounge at its New York-JFK hub in Terminal 4 opening in the coming months. The nearly 40,000-square-foot space will boast a year-round outdoor terrace and a chef’s kitchen, among other premium amenities.
