This year, Delta Air Lines will inaugurate nonstop service to Valencia on Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Starting June 5, Delta will offer four flights a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York to Valencia Airport in Manises (VLC).

Featuring two-class service aboard Boeing 757-200 ETOPS aircraft, there will be 16 seats in Delta’s award-winning Business Elite business class and 158 in economy class.
“Valencia is becoming one of Spain’s most popular destinations for Americans. With Delta’s new service, they will now be able to travel there faster and more conveniently,” said Javier Pinanes, director of the Tourist Office of Spain in New York.
