Delta is to launch a new non-stop flight between Amsterdam Schiphol and Orlando International next year.

The daily service will start on March 30, and will be operated by B767-300ER aircraft fitted with Main Cabin, Delta Comfort+ and Delta One seating.

Flights will depart Amsterdam at 1315, landing into Orlando at 1741, with the return leg leaving the central Florida city at 2145, arriving into Schiphol at 1245 the following day.

Commenting on the new route Dwight James, Delta’s senior vice president – transatlantic, said:

“Our new flight will be the only daily non-stop service between Orlando and Amsterdam improving access between these cities.

“Not only are we enabling customers’ easy access to Florida’s main attractions, but our partnership with Air France, KLM and Alitalia makes connecting throughout Europe easy and convenient via our Amsterdam hub.”

The US carrier offers around 55 departures “on an average day” from Orlando to destinations including Sao Paulo, Atlanta, Boston, LA, Miami and New York.

Delta’s partner Virgin Atlantic operates non-stop flights from Glasgow, London Gatwick and Manchester to Orlando.

Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings recently launched twice-weekly flights from Cologne/Bonn to Orlando.
