Getting to Nevis Just Got Easier Via Delta Airlines

Delta Airlines Flights To St. Kitts Nevis

Delta Airlines Flights To St. Kitts Nevis

 Charlestown, Nevis
April 16, 2008

 Got this in my email today from Delta Airlines / Northwest Airlines.  Due to the “hopefully” upcoming merger between these two airlines, getting to Nevis will be easier for us folks in the Midwest part of the USA.  Northwest has always had a lock on this region due to their hubs in Minneapolis and Detroit, and have had always had crap service to the Caribbean.  Now with this merger though flights to Nevis via St. Kitts should be much easier. 

Here is what I got from Delta / Northwest today:

Hello Mr. Nevis,

Creating America's Premier Global Airline As a SkyMiles® member, you know how important convenient worldwide connections are to your business and leisure travel plans. That’s why we are excited to announce that Delta is merging with our SkyTeam® partner Northwest Airlines to create America’s premier global airline. You’ve long known Delta and Northwest for our many customer and network strengths””Delta as the largest airline across the Atlantic and a leading carrier on the Eastern Seaboard; and Northwest as a leading U.S. carrier to Asia, Canada and throughout America’s heartland. We’re proud to bring these complementary networks together in a combination that better connects your hometown to the globe.

The combined airline, which will be called Delta, will offer unprecedented access to the world. You will be able to fly to more destinations, have more schedule options and more opportunities to earn and redeem miles in what will become the world’s largest frequent flyer program. Once we bring our operations together, we will serve more U.S. communities with convenient connections to more worldwide destinations than any other global airline. And we will be the only U.S. airline to offer direct service from the United States to the world’s major business centers across Asia, Latin America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

Delta will combine the individual strengths and complementary service networks of both airlines, which today focus on different parts of the country and the world. This will enable us to:

  • Offer continued access to more than 390 worldwide destinations in 67 countries with no hub closures.
  • Strengthen global connectivity from each of our hubs in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York, Salt Lake City, Amsterdam and Tokyo-Narita.
  • Accelerate the upgrading of existing international aircraft with lie-flat seats and personal on-demand entertainment.
  • Improve customers’ travel experience through new products and services, including enhanced self-service tools, better bag-tracking technology, new seats and refurbished cabin interiors.
  • Have the opportunity to exercise options for delivery of up to 20 widebody jets between 2010 and 2013 to provide more international service than ever before.

While the merger is undergoing review, which is expected to be completed later this year, it will be business as usual at both airlines, and we are committed to maintaining the same industry-leading customer service and focus on safety you have come to expect from us. Once the transaction closes, any operational changes will be clearly communicated to all customers worldwide, and I assure you that we are taking steps to ensure a seamless transition.
