Great news is here for Atlanta residents! Delta Air Lines has announced the reinstatement of its twice-daily service between Atlanta and São Paulo, effective from May 25. Previously discontinued, this route will now be served by a combination of Airbus A330-300 and Boeing 767-300(ER) aircraft.

Delta temporarily reduced the frequency of flights between the two cities during the low season in late March. The resumption of this service aims to offer travelers seeking connections between the United States and Brazil enhanced travel options.

New York To Rio de Janeiro Flights

In addition, New Yorkers will soon be able to fly nonstop to another Brazilian city, Rio de Janeiro, when Delta begins seasonal service between New York-JFK and Rio Galeo Airport (GIG) in Brazil on December 16. The new route will run daily on Delta’s Boeing 767-300 aircraft with Delta One, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+, and Main Cabin service. The route is the third that Delta and LATAM have announced since the Joint Venture was approved in September 2022.

“Since implementing our Joint Venture, we’ve been working closely with LATAM to introduce exciting new routes that are expanding opportunities for customers traveling between the U.S. and South America,” said Alex Antilla, Delta Vice President for Latin America.
