This weekend Delta marked the end of the year in Latin America with the inauguration of two new routes in Colombia and one in Brazil. To celebrate its new routes, Delta held a dinner last week with a number of travel agencies and Florida partners in attendance, including Visit Orlando, Universal, Seaworld and Legoland.
The routes from Atlanta to Medellin and Cartagena in Colombia, which began service on Dec. 19, have already received strong support from agency partners and are performing with sold-out flights in 2016. Delta has created alliances with local brands such as ProColombia to promote the new route, and the local team is working diligently to ensure the success of these new services.
The first Delta flight from Sao Paulo to Orlando departed from Brazil on Dec. 20, opening up a fourth U.S. gateway to Brazilian travelers. Florida is a strategic destination for Delta, as it is the most popular family destination in the U.S. for Brazilians. Delta’s new service includes four weekly flights between the two cities and will include daily flights starting in March. Delta’s strategic alliance with GOL extends this service’s reach to 25 other destinations in Brazil, with seamless connections at the Guarulhos International Airport.
