Delta Air Lines lands again at Stockholm Arlanda, with year-round service between Stockholm and New York-JFK
Last week, the US carrier and SkyTeam member resumed service between Sweden and the Big Apple.
Delta Air Lines is once again taking off from Stockholm Arlanda Airport, marking the carrier’s resumption of daily year-round service between the Swedish capital and New York. Flying with the leading airline operating between Europe and New York-JFK, passengers from Stockholm can benefit from same-day connections from JFK to more than 40 cities across the US, which makes it easy to reunite with friends, family and colleagues.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Delta Air Lines back to Sweden and Stockholm Arlanda. They have been missed and will once again be an important part of Arlanda’s intercontinental offering. The US is Sweden’s largest trading partner and Stockholm’s largest aviation market outside Europe. The increased access that Delta’s service launch entails is important for the tourism industry, for commerce in general and for air cargo. There is a pent-up need for travel, and we look forward to welcoming more Americans to Sweden and Stockholm again,” says Charlotte Ljunggren, Chief Commercial Officer at Swedavia.
“With the resumption of non-stop service from Stockholm to New York, the financial capital of the world, it will make it easier for our countries to do business in markets that US government agencies valued at 25.5 billion dollars before the pandemic,” says Nicolas Ferri, Vice President for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India at Delta. “We look forward to continuing the success of today’s flights over the summer as Americans seek new experiences in Europe and many Swedes visit the US for the first time in more than two years.”
According to information from Statista, more than 450,000 Swedes visited the US in 2019, while the US is the largest non-European market for tourism in Sweden.
Since June 2, Delta Air Lines flies daily between Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN) and New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) year-round using a Boeing 767–300 with the following timetable:

Customers flying to the US will enjoy more options in their cabin experience, including Delta One business class and for the first time Delta Premium Select, the airline’s premium economy cabin, which offers larger seats with more leg room and an adjustable footrest.
All customers will be able to enjoy personal screens with new premium content, including playlists curated by Spotify and “Classes in the Clouds”, a catalogue of material focused on well-being that is exclusive to Delta customers from Peloton.

Delta’s service from Stockholm is operated in partnership with Air France, KLM and Virgin Atlantic.
