Delta Daily from Atlanta to Rio, Brazil

Whether hitting the famous beaches at Copacabana or Ipanema, ascending the rocky spire of Corcovado, or soaking in the Dionysian spirit of Carnaval, customers will have another access to these and other Brazil’s charms: Beginning Oct. 1, Delta Air Lines offers a new daily service from Atlanta to Rio de Janeiro.

Delta plans to serve Rio daily from Atlanta with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, carrying 204 passengers in a two-class configuration.


“Customers now have more choices to fly directly to either of Brazil’s two largest cities – Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo – from Delta’s convenient Latin American gateway in Atlanta,” said James Sarvis, director-Latin America and Caribbean.


“International markets are growing in customer demand, and Brazil represents a very attractive and strategic tourist and business destination for travelers. Delta is pleased to be adding service to this rapidly growing market as we expand our international destinations.”


According to the company, Delta’s new Rio service is part of its continued focus on connecting customers to popular destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean.


On Dec. 1, 2004, the airline began second daily flights to San Jose, Costa Rica, and São Paulo, and also re-launched service to Buenos Aires, Argentina.


Delta Air Lines is the world’s second-largest airline in terms of passengers carried and the leading U.S. carrier across the Atlantic, offering daily flights to 490 destinations in 85 countries on Delta, Song, Delta Shuttle, the Delta Connection carriers and its worldwide partners.
