Delta to Launch Non-Stop Services From Paris to Raleigh-Durham, Pittsburgh

Delta Air Lines has announced that it will launch non-stop services between the Paris-Charles de Gaulle International Airport and the US cities of Raleigh-Durham and Pittsburgh in June 2009.

The two non-stop services, enabled by Delta's joint venture with Air France, is expected to offer customers in both cities convenient connections to more than 90 cities in Europe via Air France's Paris hub. The routes will be operated by Boeing 757-200 aircraft, with seating for up to 174 passengers.

Robert Cortelyou, senior vice president of network planning at Delta, said: "Strategic and unique international growth, bolstered by our innovative partnership with Air France and merger with Northwest, has been a cornerstone of Delta's successful business strategy over the last several years."
