Delta Air Lines is expanding its network of flights to Brazil as travel demand continues to increase, the US carrier announced last week. The airline company’s connections from the United States to South America’s largest market also offer award-winning customer service.

Starting on October 29, flights between Guarulhos (São Paulo) and John F. Kennedy (NYC) airports will be daily after two-year hiatus.

In December, the US airline will operate a second daily frequency between São Paulo and Atlanta to meet the demand of the holiday season flights.

The flight will be seasonal. Currently, flights take off at 7:50 pm from Atlanta and 10:50 pm from São Paulo. The second frequency will take off from Guarulhos at 9:55 am, while the return from JFK takes place at 9:50 pm.

The route will be operated aboard Airbus A330 aircraft, with four product experiences: Delta One, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin.

Delta also confirmed the return of the seasonal flight between Rio de Janeiro and Atlanta airports, on the same day, December 17th. Delta will use the Boeing 767-300 to operate the route.

“As families, friends and business travelers look forward to reconnecting, Delta is excited to grow its interstate and Brazil service and help travelers get to the places they want to with our award-winning service,” said Delta Air Lines representative in Brazil, Danillo Barbizan.

This year, Brazil is experiencing the resumption of tourism in the country. Brazilian air connectivity with the world operates at more than 80 percent of the capacity observed in 2019. From January to August 2022, the country received more than 1.6 million visitors from other countries. In 2021, 596,700 international tourists landed in the country.

The five most booked Brazilian destinations by international tourists this year were: Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Foz do Iguaçu, Salvador and Fortaleza.
