Delta is making it much easier to travel the world thanks to new nonstop global routes.

Beginning December 17, the airline will add two brand new, nonstop routes from Atlanta to Cape Town, South Africa, and Los Angeles to Tahiti in the South Pacific.

Delta will also add a nonstop service from Atlanta to Tel Aviv beginning next May.
“Offering our customers new and additional access to these international cultural powerhouses is central to our unwavering commitment to connect the world,” Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President – Network Planning, said in a press release. “As we continue to invest in our leading-airline position in Atlanta and Los Angeles, we know our customers will enjoy unparalleled connectivity to Delta’s global network, coupled with our award-winning hospitality, whether they’re traveling for business or pleasure.”

With the addition of service to Cape Town from Atlanta, the largest airline hub in the world, Delta will expand on its leading position serving Africa, providing ten times weekly service to South Africa, specifically via Cape Town and Johannesburg. The launch of additional Tel Aviv service brings the total of weekly Delta flights to Tel Aviv to 13, from three U.S. hubs – Atlanta, Boston, and New York-JFK.
