Delta Air Lines will operate a daily service between Amsterdam and Salt Lake City next summer.
The route will be the US carrier’s ninth destination from Amsterdam Schiphol.
It will begin on May 1 as a five-times weekly service before increasing to daily from May 14.
Flight DL57 departs Amsterdam at 1030 and arrives in Salt Lake City at 1315 local time. Return service DL53 takes-off from Salt Lake City at 1651 and arrives back in Amsterdam at 1055 the next day.
Delta will roster a B767-300ER aircraft onto the service.
Perry Cantarutti, Delta;s senior vice president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said: “Amsterdam has always been a strategically important hub for Delta.
“Together with our joint venture partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia, we already offer 28 peak-day flights between Amsterdam and the US and the addition of Salt Lake City to the network will provide customers with even greater choice when flying across the Atlantic.”
The new service will be part of a planned 8 per cent capacity increase at Delta’s Salt Lake City hub over the next five years, the airline said.
Its existing daily non-stop service from Paris Charles De Gaulle launched in June 2008 and is currently the only transatlantic service offered by any airline from Salt Lake City.
In June, Delta launched a daily non-stop service between Seattle and Hong Kong (see news, June 17).
