Delta Air Lines is adding service to a popular Caribbean destination from its Minneapolis-St. Paul hub.

This should be music to the ears of Northerners who like to escape the cold winter for a break in the sun — let’s take a look at the details!

Delta Launching Seasonal Flights from MSP to Turks and Caicos

According to reporting from Thrifty Traveler, the Atlanta-based airline will begin seasonal service between Minneapolis (MSP) and Providenciales (PLS) in Turks and Caicos as of January 20, 2024.

Turks and Caicos is one of the Caribbean’s most desirable destinations — especially when the weather is bad in the northern parts of the U.S. — so this decision is likely to pay dividends for Delta.

When the route begins, it will operate on Saturdays only through April 6, 2024, with a Boeing 737-800 aircraft. Tickets are expected to be on sale starting September 30, 2023.

Delta won’t be the only airline operating this route, however. Minneapolis-based low-cost carrier Sun Country also operates this route seasonally with Saturday-only service. In recent years, the 2 carriers have gone toe-to-toe on several key leisure-focused routes from the Twin Cities, and it’ll be interesting to see how this dynamic plays out on the Providenciales route.

Delta also serves Turks and Caicos nonstop from its Atlanta (ATL) and New York (JFK) hubs. Flights from Atlanta operate year-round, while flights from New York are seasonal but operate daily.

Final Thoughts

This upcoming winter is shaping up to be busy for travel to the beaches, warmth, and sun of the Caribbean.

Delta is responding to the demand by adding seasonal, Saturday-only service from its Minneapolis hub to Providenciales, the main gateway to the Turks and Caicos islands. It’ll face competition from low-cost carrier Sun Country, but something tells us this route will be a winner for Delta and we’d wager that we’ll see it return for the next season — and hopefully with more frequency.
