Delta announces Boston newest hub

travel, handsome, hunkEarlier this summer Delta Airlines announced Boston would become the airline’s newest hub, putting Jet Blue – Logan Airport’s largest carrier – on notice. Delta plans to ramp up the number of non-stop flights out of the Boston airport and use it as a transatlantic gateway to Europe for flights leaving from the United States. Recently, Delta added nonstop flights to Portugal adding to a growing list of European destinations one can fly non-stop from Boston on Delta.

Currently JetBlue carries nearly double the number of passengers as Delta from Boston with the New York-based airline taking 28% share of Logan’s 39.3 million passengers, while Delta serves slightly less than half with a 17.3% share.

This is great news for travelers coming into and out of Logan Airport. Hopefully Delta’s commitment to the area will result in cheaper fares due to more competition and new non-stop destinations.  You can read more about the announcement made earlier this summer, here.
