Airline now offers five routes between Minnesota and Europe

Delta Air Lines launches a new international route today with service between Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and Dublin, Ireland (DUB). 

The first flight from MSP to Dublin departs at 9:20 p.m. this evening for a daily flight schedule running through Oct. 25. Delta is operating the service on a Boeing 767-300 aircraft. 
“Delta has strengthened its transatlantic capacity as the number one carrier at MSP,” said Brian Ryks, CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission. “Europe will be a top draw this summer, and the Dublin route gives Delta travelers more direct flights into Europe, with a premium schedule of connections to other major overseas destinations.”   

“As MSP’s largest global carrier, Delta is proud to offer our customers even more international destinations to explore with the start of our Dublin service this summer,” said Jeannine Ashworth, Delta’s vice president of operations at MSP. “We’ve already seen strong interest for our MSP-DUB route and the Delta team here in Minneapolis is ready to welcome our customers onboard, wherever their travels take them.”

Delta now operates 24 international routes from MSP, which is the airline’s second busiest hub. The Dublin service is the first new transatlantic Delta route from MSP since 2016, when it added Reykjavik, Iceland. 

“We’re thankful for Delta’s continued partnership and investment,” said MAC Chair Rick King. 
“Delta was instrumental in MSP’s pandemic recovery, restoring its full slate of routes, and now it’s growing its network again to support strong business and leisure travel demand across Minnesota and the Upper Midwest.” 
Delta operates nearly 350 peak-day departures to over 135 destinations across the globe from MSP, with nonstop service to popular international destinations including Amsterdam, Paris, London, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico City, Tokyo-Haneda and more.
