Delta Reaching for Gold with Additional Flight From New York to Athens

Additional service added for customers traveling to Summer Olympic Games

ATLANTA, Nov. 25, 2003 - Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) is offering customers more service this summer from New York to Athens, Greece, just in time for the 2004 Olympic Summer Games.

From New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Delta will offer customers a second flight to Athens starting June 2. The additional flight will depart to Athens three times weekly (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) until Sept. 29.

“Since Delta's first transatlantic flight 25 years ago with fewer than 300 passengers, Delta has grown to the point where millions of passengers each year take an international trip on a Delta flight,” said Subodh Karnik, Delta’s senior vice president - Network and Revenue Management. “Delta is proud to be the only U.S. carrier to offer nonstop service to Athens, and we’re pleased to offer customers a second opportunity to reach the original home of the Olympic Games.”

Delta currently offers one daily nonstop flight to Athens from New York-JFK.

The new service will be flown with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, featuring Delta’s award-winning BusinessElite service.



New York-JFK at 5:50 p.m.
Athens at 10:45 a.m.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday

Athens at 12:20 p.m.
New York-JFK at 4 p.m.
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday

Delta Air Lines, the world’s second largest airline in terms of passengers carried and the leading U.S. carrier across the Atlantic, offers 6,408 flights each day to 457 destinations in 82 countries on Delta, Song, Delta Shuttle, Delta Connection and Delta’s worldwide partners. Delta is a founding member of SkyTeam, a global airline alliance that provides customers with extensive worldwide destinations, flights and services. For more information, please go to delta.com.

Looks like DL is finally beginning to bring back service cut since September 11th.
