deltaDelta Air Lines has announced its Brussels-Atlanta service will resume from March 2017, doubling its network from Belgium. The U.S. airline currently operates a daily year-round service between Brussels and New York-JFK.

The service, which will begin on March 26, 2017, will be the only nonstop flight between the Belgian capital and Atlanta and will operate daily throughout the summer.

All flights from Belgium are operated in conjunction with joint venture partners Air France, KLM and Alitalia.

“As Brussels Airport transitions all airlines back to the main check-in area, we are pleased to confirm we will reinstate our Atlanta service for next summer,” said Dwight James, Delta’s Senior Vice President, trans-Atlantic. “It has been a difficult few months for the local community but we remain committed to Belgium and showing our support by operating two daily flights, which will benefit both the travelling public and also the local economy.”
