Delta adding Boston routes next summer

Delta Air Lines will launch five new routes out of Boston next year, including international service to Tel Aviv and Athens.

Nonstop service to Tel Aviv from Boston will start May 26 followed by service to Athens the next day. Both flights will operate three times per week on Airbus A330 aircraft.

Service from Boston to Baltimore, Denver and San Diego will begin on July 11. Flights to Baltimore will operate five times per week on Embraer 175 aircraft, while Denver and San Diego service will be daily on Boeing 737-900 and 737-800 aircraft, respectively.

The new routes will bring Delta’s Boston hub to 160 daily nonstop flights to 55 destinations, a 20% increase from October 2019, according to Delta.

The carrier is facing increased competition with the American Airlines-JetBlue partnership adding service out of Boston, though the alliance currently is facing a challenge by the U.S. Justice Department.
