Delta Air Lines is flying to Barcelona from Atlanta again this season, as part of its summer growth ambitions in Europe. This summer, the airline's extensive network across the Atlantic includes several destinations in Spain. Delta is reviving its operations in response to increased passenger demand, resuming several previously halted flights and even adding extra staff to support its expanding operations.
From April 2, Delta Air Lines resumed service between Atlanta and Barcelona. For the eight-hour journey between the two cities, the airline used an Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which will initially be flown three times a week. The service will be increased to a once-daily trip starting April 14.
Delta Air Lines announced its summer expansion plans to Europe about two weeks ago, revealing various flights it wants to run to the continent. The airline will fly to Europe on more than 510 flights every week, with its Delta Premium Select cabin available on nearly all of them.
This season, Barcelona isn't the only place with direct Delta flights. Delta has begun flights to Madrid from Atlanta as of April 1. The airline's Boeing 767-400ER planes fly this route, with the Atlanta-Madrid trip departing at 6:10 p.m. and arriving at 8:45 a.m. The return flight is planned to leave at 11:15 a.m. and arrive in Atlanta at 2:55 p.m.
Barcelona and Madrid are already connected to New York JFK with nonstop Delta flights on a regular basis.
