MIAMI – Delta will launch two new nonstop services from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Amsterdam (AMS) and Paris (CDG) on June 18, 2018.
The carrier already has seasonal routes to AMS from Orlando (MCO) and to CDG from Indianapolis (IND). Deborah Flint, LAWA Chief Executive Officer congratulated their partner carrier in a statement and added that “it is because of new routes like this one that LAX’s increase in international flights is the largest in new markets served by all U.S. airports.”
The four-time-a-week service to AMS will have departing flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and will be operated on a Boeing 777-200(ER), as well as the three-time-a-week route to CDG that will be served on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
The aircraft seats 291 passengers to complement Air France’s existing service between LAX and CD.
Altogether, Delta, Air France, and KLM will offer LAX customers three peak-day flights to Paris and two daily flights to Amsterdam.
Ranjan Goswami, Delta’s Vice President – Los Angeles and Sales said that Delta’s new Amsterdam and Paris service represent large partner hubs on both sides of the pond.
“Our Angeleno customers [will get] convenient, one-stop connecting service to more than 100 destinations in Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa through our partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia, while customers traveling from Europe can connect to more than 15 destinations in the U.S.,” he said.
Delta’s flights from Los Angeles to Amsterdam and Paris will operate on the following schedule:
|DL78||Los Angeles at 12:00||Amsterdam at 07:55 (Next day)|
|DL79||Amsterdam at 15:35||Los Angeles at 18:25|
|DL156||Los Angeles at 12:00||Paris at 07:55 (Next day)|

According to Dwight James, Delta’s Senior Vice President – Trans-Atlantic, “Delta was the first U.S. airline to fully equip lie-flat Business Class and Premium main cabin seating on transoceanic aircraft,” making a punctual emphasis on carrier’s plan for next summer, that will include locally-sourced chef-driven menus and complimentary in-flight entertainment.
Delta’s new services are part of a series of new trans-Atlantic routes at Delta Hubs around the country, including seasonal service between New York-JFK and the Azores and year-round service between New York-JFK and Lagos; seasonal service between Atlanta and Lisbon.
