Keflavik Airport (KEF) handles around 126,000 passengers per year. Delta Air Lines is one of seven commercial airlines that have agreements with the airport. The other six are Air France, British Airways, Lufthansa, Korean Air, Singapore Airlines, and Thai Airways.
Delta does not have any flights to Keflavik right now but they do from several other European cities including Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Frankfurt, London Heathrow, Milan, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Prague, and Warsaw.
From these cities, you can connect to KEF via Copenhagen or Oslo with Scandinavian Airlines or Austrian Airlines respectively.
You can also reach Keflavik from North America; in fact, it's the only place outside Europe where you can catch a flight to Iceland. The only problem is that there are no Delta flights between New York/New Jersey and Keflavik. However, there are connections to Europe where you can find alternative routes with other carriers.
The best way to get to Keflavik from elsewhere in Europe is to first go to Copenhagen or Oslo and then take a connecting flight.
Within Iceland, the only city with daily flights is Reykjavik.
Delta, together with its subsidiaries and regional affiliates, conducts around 5000 flights every day. It serves 319 locations in 54 countries throughout the world.
The company was founded on December 17, 1945 by Col. Charles William Douglas, who named it after his daughter, Delta Douglas. The first flight took place on March 24, 1946, and was a demonstration flight from Atlanta to New York City. The first commercial flight departed two days later. In 1947, Delta started flying to Europe, and in 1949, it opened its first international airport terminal in London-Gatwick.
In 1954, Delta introduced the first all-cargo plane in its class, the DC-9. This decision proved very successful, as today almost half of all planes operated by Delta are of this type. In 1962, Delta bought out its partner Northwest Airways, and in 2003, it acquired Laker Airlines and British Caledonian Airways. Today, Delta is the largest carrier at London Heathrow.
The world's biggest aircraft maker Boeing recently announced that from 2017, it will build a new generation of airplanes for Delta. The new jets will be able to carry up to 500 passengers more than any other airplane in existence. They are expected to enter service in 2020 and 2023.
Delta is Akron-Canton International Airport's third largest airline, handling approximately 20% of the airport's 835,000 passengers in 2019. Delta is the only airline that flies from Akron-Canton to Atlanta, and it is the only airline that travels from CAK to Hartsfield-Jackson International, the world's busiest airport.
The Delta connection from Akron-Canton to Atlanta began on May 1, 1971, with the introduction of the nonstop flight between these two cities. At first, Delta operated a fleet of 727s as well as a few 707s and 200-seat CFMs. By the time the route was suspended after 21 months due to low passenger numbers, Delta had converted all but one of its 727s to 720s with 50-seat composite cabins. The sole remaining 727 was eventually replaced by a new 70-seat plane. In 1984, Delta returned to Akron-Canton with the launch of a daily roundtrip flight between the two cities using 100-seat jets. This service was very successful and led to the addition of more flights and an increased frequency during peak seasons. Today, Delta operates a total of six daily departures from Akron-Canton to both Atlanta terminals. Three of these flights are scheduled around 2 hours 30 minutes after departing from AKr and three others around 4 hours after leaving CAK.
When it comes to airfare, there is no difference between booking a ticket through Delta or any other carrier's website.
Delta Air Lines uses the airport as a hub, and it is a significant gateway to the Intermountain West and West Coast. Every day, 343 nonstop airline flights depart from the airport for 93 locations in North America and Europe. It is also the largest employer in Salt Lake County with more than 9,000 employees.
The airport has experienced significant growth over the last 10 years, with an average of 100 new hotel rooms being added each year. In 2010, there were almost 1 million passenger trips made through the airport, up from 855,000 in 2000. The number of cargo shipments has increased by about 50 percent since 2004.
Salt Lake City International Airport is one of the fastest-growing airports in the country. The city's population is well-educated, with nearly 40 percent holding at least a bachelor's degree. In addition, many high-tech companies have their headquarters here; these industries account for more than 15 percent of the region's jobs.
The airport is owned by the city and county of Salt Lake County, but operated by an independent authority known as the Utah Division of Aviation. Its board of directors sets policy for the airport, including budgeting decisions and hiring management staff. The division is responsible for planning, designing, building, maintaining, and operating the airport.
