US/Barbados: Delta Resumes Direct Flights to Barbados After 3-Year Hiatus

According to The Latin American Tribune, Delta Air Lines reinstated on Thursday (December 4) its direct service from the United States to Barbados after a three-year hiatus.

John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) to Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI) in Bridgetown, the Barbados Tourism Authority said on its official website.

COMMENT: The flights will operate with Boeing 737 aircraft that can seat up to 160 people.

Delta’s resumption of non-stop service represents an “opportunity to grow the US market and bring it back to the days prior to the global recession of 2008, Adrian Elcock, chairman of the board of directors at the Barbados Tourism Authority, said in July when the new flights were announced.
