DELTA FLIES TWO MILLION PASSENGERS TO AFRICA

Since it has been operating routes to Africa from December 2006, Delta Air Lines has carried two million passengers on its US-Africa services.

Delta operates direct flights from the US to seven African cities in six countries with more than 6,800 weekly seats.

“We are delighted to reach this major milestone in our African operations as we mark our fourth anniversary of service to Africa,” said Perry Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “In four years, we have grown our operations in Africa from 22 weekly departures in December 2006, to more than 60 planned by January 2011. Africa remains a key part of Delta’s international network strategy and we look forward to expanding our operations with service to Luanda starting in January next year.”

Delta is the only airline to operate bi-directional nonstop service between South Africa and the United States; to fly direct to the U.S. from two Nigerian Cities, Lagos and Abuja; and to fly nonstop from Accra to two U.S. cities, Atlanta and New York JFK.

Delta is also the only airline to operate direct service between Liberia and the United States and from January 2011 will be the only airline to operate scheduled service to the U.S. from Angola.
