Leave Winter’s Chill Behind with Delta’s New Nonstop Service to Tobago


Convenient service, special low fare make Caribbean escapes even easier this winter

ATLANTA, Nov. 13, 2006 – Bathing suit: check. Snorkel gear: check. Delta Air Lines ticket to the Caribbean’s southernmost islands of Trinidad and Tobago just in time for Carnival: check. Packing for a Caribbean vacation has never been easier thanks to Delta Air Lines’ international expansion, including new weekly nonstop service between the airline’s largest hub at Atlanta and Tobago’s Crown Point International Airport, effective Feb. 17, 2007. The new flights complement Delta’s recently announced service between Atlanta and Port of Spain, Trinidad – both new routes are subject to foreign government approval.

“Our customers’ response to Delta’s rapid international expansion has been overwhelming and we’re pleased to continue adding convenient nonstop service to the markets where our customers most want to travel,” said Bob Cortelyou, vice president – Network Planning at Delta. “With the new routes Delta is adding this winter, we will operate service to more than 20 destinations in the Caribbean, making it even easier for customers to head to sun-drenched islands.”

The new flights build upon Delta’s ongoing expansion into Latin America and the Caribbean, where, since last fall, the airline has added, announced or applied to serve more than 40 new routes. Today, Delta and the Delta Connection carriers offer customers access to more than 400 weekly flights to 48 destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean. From its global hub in Atlanta, Delta in December will inaugurate service to new Caribbean cities including Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago; Pointe a Pitre, Guadeloupe; Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic**; and Fort de France, Martinique.

To celebrate its ongoing international expansion, Delta is offering a special low fare for travel to its newest Caribbean destination. Tickets must be purchased by Nov. 27, 2006, and travel must be completed by April 29, 2007.
