Delta will add to its portfolio of international routes with never-before-operated service from Los Angeles to Auckland, New Zealand beginning this fall, while also boosting its trans-Atlantic service from its New York-JFK and Atlanta hubs starting this spring.
Delta is forging its way to full network restoration, announcing its first slate of summer 2023 trans-Atlantic routes last fall to cities like Edinburgh, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Geneva and Stuttgart, many routes that have not been flown since pre-pandemic.
Daily flights between New Zealand’s largest city and Los Angeles will begin Oct. 28 on an Airbus A350-900 aircraft, as Delta becomes the only U.S. airline to provide nonstop service. This new destination joins other new Los Angeles service to Tahiti, Paris and London-Heathrow and will complement the airline’s current service from LAX to Sydney, where it operates 10 flights per week in the winter and daily service to Tokyo-Haneda. Delta operates more than 150 daily flights from LAX to 53 destinations across the globe as the airport’s leading premium global carrier.
Delta continues to transform the airport experience at LAX, debuting the first two major phases of the brand-new terminal last year: the headhouse and the T3 facility. This spring, customers can look forward to the opening of the west headhouse, featuring a dedicated Delta One check-in area. Additionally, the first-of-its-kind Delta One Club will open its doors in 2024, connect to the existing Terminal 3 Club and offer a personalized, dedicated level of service that further elevates the lounge experience.
