Delta To Launch Nonstop Daily Flights To Paris From Raleigh
Delta Airlines has announced that it will soon launch daily nonstop flight service from Raleigh-Durham International Airport to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport next year.
The flight will be done using Boeing’s 164-seat, 757-200ER aircraft and will be operated in conjunction with Delta’s European joint venture partners including KLM, Air France, Alitalia and KLM. The first flight from Raleigh to Paris takes off on May 12, 2016. Flight DL 230 will regularly take off from Raleigh-Durham at 6:13 p.m. and arrive at Paris Charles de Gaulle at 8:35 a.m. the next day. Meanwhile, the return flight from Paris will be onboard flight DL 231, which takes off from Paris at 10:45 a.m. and will arrive at Raleigh at 1:57 p.m..
Delta Vice President for Global Sales Bob Somers explains Raleigh is a very important market for Delta and linking it with a direct flight to Paris is its latest move in making investments in the region. Delta actually enjoys the largest presence at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. It operates more than 60 departures here daily. Moreover, Raleigh-Durham (RDU) Airport Authority President and Chief Executive Officer Mike Landguth also says that Delta Airlines has already been in business with RDU for over 40 years. And if fact, the airline has already been providing nonstop service to as much as 20 cities from Raleigh. Nonetheless, the newest investment to the community is highly appreciated.
Meanwhile, Delta is pleased to tell its customers that from the airline’s joint hub in Paris, passengers can also readily continue on traveling to more than 75 destinations throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Delta Airlines says that they will make Paris flights available for sale beginning Saturday.
