Delta to commence nonstop Detroit Rome flights

Delta Air Lines plans to commence nonstop flights between Detroit Metro Airport and Rome Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport from June 4, 2009 (subject to government approvals), using Delta’s subsidiary Northwest.

This service will be in addition to Delta’s existing nonstop daily service between Rome and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and twice daily nonstop from New York’s John F. Kennedy-JFK International Airport.

Northwest will operate the service in cooperation with Northwest’s joint venture partner, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, using an Airbus A330-300 aircraft with a two class configuration. 34 seats in business class and 264 seats in economy.

The plane is equipped with World Business Class lie-flat seats featuring a privacy canopy, 60 inches of space between seats, and personal laptop computer power, and an on-demand in-flight entertainment with a wide selection of movies, games and on-board shopping in both classes.

NW50 departs Detroit at 19:45 and arrives Rome 11:00 the next day.
NW49 departs Rome at 13:00 and arrive Detroit 17:50 the same day.
