Delta Air Lines added flights to Venice (VCE) in Italy — perhaps one of the most romantic cities in the world — back into its schedule for this summer.
On May 5, 2022, the Atlanta-based airline will inaugurate new service from New York (JFK) to Venice’s Marco Polo Airport (VCE). And a few weeks later, its currently-suspended service from Atlanta (ATL) will resume on May 26, 2022.
Here are the details you need to know.
To Venice, With Love
Both of Delta’s Venice routes will operate seasonally, from May through October. However, each of these routes will be flown daily, signaling that Delta has high hopes for them.
A potential downside for some is that both of the routes are scheduled to be operated with a Boeing 767, of which all but a few are over 20 years old.
Given their age, Delta realized it was high time that the jets’ interiors were refreshed and has begun a refurbishment program for these aircraft.
The most noticeable change will be the introduction of a premium economy cabin (known as Premium Select in Delta-speak), though the Delta One and economy cabins will be refreshed as well.
Unfortunately, the old-school Thompson Vantage seats in Delta One weren’t replaced with the pods and suites that you might be used to on the carrier’s newer jets.
By the end of May 2022, around 20 of these 767s are expected to have received the retrofit, so chances are pretty good that you’ll get to fly on one if you decide to head to Venice with Delta this summer.

New York to Venice
New York (JFK) will be the first city to see nonstop flights to Venice this summer. They’ll operate daily on a seasonal basis according to the following schedule:
- Depart New York (JFK) 8 p.m. — Arrive Venice (VCE) 10:30 a.m. (+1)
- Depart Venice (VCE) 1:15 p.m. — Arrive New York (JFK) 4:50 p.m.
Atlanta to Venice
From May 26, 2022, Delta will operate its daily flight between Atlanta and Venice on a seasonal basis according to the following schedule:
- Depart Atlanta (ATL) 5:55 p.m. — Arrive Venice (VCE) 9:20 a.m. (+1)
- Depart Venice (VCE) 11:20 a.m. — Arrive Atlanta (ATL) 4:10 p.m.
Delta’s Routes to Italy
In addition to Venice, Delta also flies from the U.S. to Rome (FCO) and Milan (MXP).
Italy’s capital sees seasonal summer service from Boston (BOS) along with year-round service from Atlanta (ATL) and New York (JFK). Milan has seasonal service from Atlanta (ATL) and year-round, daily flights from New York (JFK).
It looks like summer 2022 will mark an even stronger return to international long-haul travel than we saw in 2021. The return (and addition) of nonstop service with Delta to this popular Italian destination will give travelers yet another option for crossing the Atlantic and will hopefully contribute to a sustained recovery in international travel throughout the year.
