Delta Air Lines announced two trans-Atlantic routes from its Midwest hubs next summer. Delta will fly daily from Minneapolis-St. Paul to Rome, as well as six weekly flights from Detroit to Munich beginning May 26, 2016. The service will be operated in conjunction with Delta's joint venture partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia.
In all, Delta will offer five new routes across the Atlantic beginning next summer: Detroit to Munich; Minneapolis-St. Paul to Rome; New York-JFK to Edinburgh, Scotland; Salt Lake City to London-Heathrow; and Raleigh-Durham to Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
