Delta returns to Stockholm in summer

Up to six round trips per week are scheduled

Delta Air Lines will fly nonstop between Stockholm Arlanda and New York this summer. Starting June 2, there will be up to six round trips per week with a 170-seat Boeing 757-200. It is Sweden’s only route to JFK airport in New York.
“Stockholm has long been a popular destination for American vacationers and it is therefore logical to have this connection during the summer months,” Perry Cantarutti, head of Delta’s operations in Europe, said. “We are pleased to contribute to the income from tourism in Sweden by flying in thousands of tourists in summer.”
The route will be operated six times a week in June, five times per week in July and four times a week in August. Departures are 13:50 from Arlanda, with arrival at JFK at 16:40 local time. To Stockholm flights depart at 21.45, landing in Arlanda at 12:20 the following day.
