New Route of the Day – Americas (9 May 2024): Delta between Minneapolis and Dublin


Delta introduced a new seasonal transatlantic service between Minneapolis/St. Paul and Dublin on Thursday 9 May. The 6,015-kilometre route will be maintained daily with the 767-300 aircraft. It will go head-to-head against Aer Lingus’ 3-weekly flights between the two cities.

Flight DL114 takes off from Minneapolis/St. Paul at 21:20 local time, arriving in Dublin at 10:50 local time the following morning. The return service, operating as DL115, takes off from Ireland’s capital at 12:00 local time, arriving back in the US at 14:25 local time.

What they said

Joe Esposito, Vice President for Network Planning at Delta, said: “Delta continues to build on its longstanding No. 1 position in Minneapolis with another nonstop option for customers traveling overseas. With nearly 10 trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific flights flying direct from the Twin Cities, customers have the utmost choice, coupled with our award-winning customer service, when traveling with us.”

Rick King, Chair of operator Metropolitan Airports Commission, noted: “MSP travellers are eager for increased air service to European destinations, and we’re pleased to see Delta add nonstop service to Dublin. This route is important to leisure and business travellers as we anticipate continued international demand into 2024 and beyond.”

Delta serves Dublin from four US cities

Delta now offers seasonal flights to Dublin from three of its US hubs – Atlanta, Boston, and Minneapolis – in addition to year-round service from New York JFK. As a result, the carrier offers almost 14,000 weekly seats between the US and Dublin this summer. All the routes are maintained daily for a total of 28-weekly rotations.

Dublin Airport has welcomed Delta as a key partner for nearly four decades, with the first nonstop service established by the airline between Atlanta and Dublin in 1988.

Delta dominates in Minneapolis

Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport was a major hub for Northwest Airlines, and still is for its successor Delta, which, together with its affiliates, account for around 70% of its entire passenger traffic.

It is currently operating more than 330-daily flights to 120 destinations from the airport, spanning North America, Europe, and Asia. Delta is the only carrier providing nonstop service from Minneapolis/St. Paul to Asia, with daily service to Seoul ICN and Tokyo HND.
