Delta Air Lines recently announced the restoration of its twice-daily service between Atlanta and São Paulo.
The United States airline has been operating flights to and from Brazil for more than thirty years, and this reestablishment is a sign of the airline’s commitment to the region. Flights between the two airports Hartsfield–Jackson International and Guarulhos International are operated by Boeing 767-300ER aircraft and the A330-300.
According to Delta’s press release, the airline’s president, Glen Hauenstein, expressed excitement over the restoration of the route. “We are excited to resume our services to São Paulo and offer more connections from our Atlanta hub to Brazil,” he said. “It underscores our commitment to the region and our customers, especially as travel continues to rebound.”
Twice-daily service between Atlanta and São Paulo gives travelers more options for connecting flights to other cities in Brazil and throughout South America. It will also allow for more convenient and efficient travel for those traveling from the United States to Brazil.
Delta Airlines’ announcement also comes at a time when travel restrictions are beginning to ease in many countries around the world, including Brazil. As more people get vaccinated and travel restrictions are lifted, demand for international travel is expected to increase.
