Delta Air Lines Adds Two International Destinations from Boston: Edinburgh and Lisbon

Delta is giving Boston customers even more trans-Atlantic choices beginning next summer when the airline inaugurates new nonstop service to both Edinburgh, Ireland and Lisbon, Portugal on May 23. These routes will be the eighth and ninth nonstop trans-Atlantic destinations from Boston on Delta and its partners during the summer 2019 season.

“Delta has significantly grown Boston’s direct access to the world in the past five years, including popular tourism destinations like Dublin and now Lisbon, as well as flights to major international hubs offering onward travel to hundreds more destinations,” said Roberto Ioriatti, Vice President — Trans-Atlantic. “Business and leisure travelers will both enjoy convenient nonstop service between Boston and Scotland, delivered with Delta’s unmatched reliability and renowned customer service.”

The new Dublin route complements Delta’s existing service between Boston and the U.K., which includes flights to London-Heathrow, offered both on Delta and joint venture partner Virgin Atlantic, as well as Virgin Atlantic’s service to Manchester. Lisbon flying complements existing Delta service to London-Heathrow, Amsterdam, Paris and Dublin.
