Flying Further: Delta Interlines with SKY Express
Now, you can go ahead and plan that perfect Greek getaway you have been wanting to have. This is because Delta Air Lines and Greek carrier SKY express have entered into an interline agreement to provide convenient connections for customers between North America and Greece.
Delta is offering a record number of flights between the U.S. and Athens this summer, with services from Atlanta, Boston and New York-JFK, as Greece continues to grow in popularity with American travelers.
Effective May 19, Delta customers flying from North America will be able to fly on one of Delta’s daily nonstop services to Athens then connect to 34 hotspots across Greece and Cyprus operated by SKY express.
Destinations available to Delta customers one or two stops from the United States include the picture-perfect islands of Mykonos, Kefalonia and Santorini; family favorites Crete and Corfu; and Larnaca in Cyprus.
Customers will be able to hold a single Delta ticket and check their bags from North America all the way to their final destination, providing customers with a seamless service to some of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean.
The partnership is another milestone for Delta, offering even greater network opportunities for North American customers and improving connections to Greece.
The new routes complement Delta and SKY express destinations available through existing agreements with Air France and KLM via Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.
SKY express operates a fleet of modern, fuel-efficient aircraft comprising A320neo and ATR 72600 aircraft suited to the geographical environment of the Greek islands.
