Delta Airlines plans to increase the number of flights it provides between the US and Italy with a service from Minneapolis-St. Paul to Rome. The nonstop flight will operate daily throughout the summer season, with the increase starting from May 26, 2016.
This new service will be the fifth long-haul route that Delta operates out of Minneapolis. It will increase the airline’s peak-day services from the US to Italy to ten during the summer season. The other destinations available from Minneapolis are London, Paris, Amsterdam and Tokyo-Narita.
Passengers flying into Rome on both business and leisure trips will be able to make use of a range of on-board amenities. This includes full flat-bed seats and regional dining options in their Delta One cabin. Delta Comfort+ customers will have additional legroom and more reclining space to make their journey more comfortable. An excellent inflight entertainment service and Wi-Fi for all passengers can be found throughout the cabin.
Once travelers arrive in Rome, a choice of accommodation options is available, from self-catering apartments to luxury hotels. Visitors can spend time touring the many historical and cultural sites, including the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.
This is not the only additional long-haul destination Delta will offer for summer 2016. The airline will also be adding a Detroit to Munich route, which will operate six times a week starting from May 26, in addition to services between New York and Edinburgh, Salt Lake City and Heathrow, and Raleigh-Durham and Paris.
