Delta Air Lines is bringing back nonstop flights between New York City and one of Italy’s most picturesque cities.

Here’s what you need to know about this exciting news!

Delta Resumes Direct Flights Between JFK and Venice

Delta has restarted daily nonstop service between New York (JFK) and Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE).

Delta is flying its Boeing 767-300 aircraft with 216 seats on the route. This jet features 26 fully flat Delta One seats, 18 Premium Select seats, 21 extra-legroom Comfort+ seats, and 151 Main Cabin seats.

Additionally, the airline will offer 2 flights from Venice to its hub, Atlanta (ATL). Flights on the route resume later this month, and Delta will add a second flight this summer.

All told, Delta says it will offer 17 weekly flights between Venice and the U.S. during the peak season.

“As one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice is hugely popular with U.S. travelers, and our flights bring valuable tourism and trade opportunities to the city and the region as well as unrivaled opportunities for Venetians looking to explore destinations across the Americas,” said Matteo Curcio, Delta’s Senior Vice President for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India.

Booking Delta Flights to Venice

Flights on both routes are now available to be booked on

We’re seeing cash rates out of ATL starting at $613 round-trip this spring, while JFK flights start at $563 round-trip this fall. Those are pretty competitive prices, especially considering Venice’s reputation as one of the most popular travel destinations in the world.

But you don’t have to book using cash. Instead, you can book your ticket using Delta SkyMiles or Virgin Atlantic Flying Club points. The latter is the better option, as you’ll spend as little as 56,500 points for a one-way ticket from JFK to VCE.

You can earn Flying Club points by transferring from Amex Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou Rewards, and Marriott Bonvoy.

In comparison, an award booked through Delta will cost you more than 90,000 SkyMiles one-way for the same date. However, Delta miles are straightforward to earn, from opening a co-branded credit card to transferring points from Amex or Marriott.
