Flights take off to Miami
Delta announced at the start of 2020 that it will be adding five daily nonstop flights to Miami, creating easier Latin America connections for TPA passengers with its partnering LATAM Airlines. The service, which will use the 76-seater Embraer ERJ-175, is also expected to also make one-stop flights to Europe more accessible via its partnering SkyTeam airlines such as Alitalia and Air France.
Delta announced the new Miami service as a larger effort to bolster its Miami network, adding 13 total nonstop flights to MIA from Orlando, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City and Tampa. The increased service is part of the carrier’s developing partnership with LATAM, which Delta announced late last year.
