Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) and Delta Air Lines today celebrated Delta's 80th anniversary of providing service to Montreal.
"We are very pleased to celebrate Delta Air Lines' contribution to Montreal's air service over the past eight decades," said ADM President and Chief Executive Officer James Cherry. "Delta is today one of Montreal-Trudeau airport's key partners, and its presence is still growing, as shown by its 30% seat capacity increase since 2010."
"We are very grateful and honoured to serve travelers from the Montreal area for the past 80 years. Montreal is a strategic market for us where we currently offer up to 16 daily flights to our hub cities in the USA connecting our passengers to destinations all over the world." commented Delta Air Lines / KLM / Air France / Alitalia Canada Sales General Manager Adeline Piekham-Hsieh.
Delta Air Lines began operations in Montreal under the name Boston-Maine Airways on March 20, 1934, with its inaugural flight to Boston. The 10-passenger aircraft took almost three hours to reach its final destination, with three stops in Vermont (Burlington, Montpelier and White River Junction) and two in New Hampshire (Manchester and Concord).
Today, Delta and its affiliates provide Montreal passengers with 116 weekly flights to five major American airports (Detroit, New York-LaGuardia, New York-John F. Kennedy, Atlanta and Minneapolis).
