Nonstop services from Atlanta to Cape Town and Los Angeles to Tahiti will both be available from December 17. The airline will also add nonstop service from Atlanta to Tel Aviv starting next May, the airline announced on Friday.
Dialogue between the Consulate General of Israel in the southeastern United States and the Israeli Ministry of Tourism office in the southern United States led to a decision agreed by both parties to strengthen relations between Georgia and Israel.
“Delta has long connected Georgia to the world, and this direct flight from Atlanta to Tel Aviv will provide our state with opportunities for continued growth with important economic partners,” Governor Brian Kemp said. “The State of Georgia proudly supports Delta’s priority of providing service to Tel Aviv and we look forward to providing expanded travel options for Georgians, strengthening international ties and building new relationships in the region. “
The airline said it sought to provide “access to these international cultural powerhouses” to show its commitment to connecting the world.
