Delta Airlines has announced a brand new direct flight from Valencia to New York City, starting in June ’09. It will be the only direct flight from the city to the United States. Currently, there are none.
This is great news for the region and the airport, especially after the pullout of Ryan Air. Although Delta isn’t our favorite airline, they are one of the cheaper American companies, so we assume prices will be decent.
The flights will be on a Boeing 757-200 ETOPS and fly four times a week. It doesn’t look like purchases are available yet, but we’ll definitely keep an eye on Delta’s website.
It’s funny — shortly after we moved Berlin, Delta announced the first transatlantic flight from there to New York City, and now the same has happened in our new home. Alright Delta, we get it: you think we’re cute.
