Delta has announced its first nonstop flight between Orlando International Airport and Amsterdam Airport, directly connecting central Florida to the Netherlands. The flight is scheduled to take off March 30, 2018.
According to Dwight James, Delta’s senior vice president, the new flight will be the only daily nonstop service between Orlando and Amsterdam. “Not only are we enabling customers’ easy access to Florida’s main attractions, but our partnership with Air France, KLM and Alitalia makes connecting throughout Europe easy and convenient via our Amsterdam hub,” he said in a press release.
Flights are scheduled on a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, which offers Delta One, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin seating. All seats have Wi-Fi, in-flight entertainment screens, and power ports. Complimentary meals and beverages will also be provided in all cabins.
As of now, flights are scheduled to depart Orlando at 9:45 p.m. and arrive the next day in Amsterdam at 12:45 p.m. Flights returning from Amsterdam are scheduled to depart at 1:15 p.m. and land in Orlando at 5:41 p.m.
Currently, the airline has approximately 55 departures on an average day to Sao Paulo, Atlanta, Boston, Cincinnati, Detroit, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York City, Salt Lake City, Seattle and Raleigh/Durham. Delta also offers weekly nonstop service at Orlando to Cancun, Columbus, Kansas City, Louisville, Memphis, Milwaukee, Nashville, Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Washington-Reagan National.
