SALT LAKE CITY — Delta Air Lines will launch daily nonstop services between Salt Lake City and Amsterdam in May 2015.
The summer service, Delta’s ninth destination from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, will be operated in conjunction with joint venture partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia.
The new service will be part of a planned 8 percent capacity increase at Delta’s hub at Salt Lake City International Airport over the next five years.
Operations from Amsterdam will begin with five flights a week on May 1, then daily on May 14.
Flight DL 57 will leave Amsterdam at 10:30 a.m. and arrive in Salt Lake City at 1:15 p.m. the same day. Flight DL 56 will leave Salt Lake City at 4:51 p.m. and arrive in Amsterdam at 10:55 a.m. the next day.
The service will be operated using a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.
Delta is the largest airline in Salt Lake City with more than 260 peak-day departures to nearly 90 destinations, including seven international destinations, according to a news release from the carrier.
Last month, Delta was part of a groundbreaking event for Salt Lake City International Airport’s $1.8 billion terminal redevelopment program. The first major phase of construction is expected to be completed in 2019.
