Delta Air Lines now offers improved connectivity for Middle East passengers travelling to the US with the opening of carrier's nonstop daily flights from Dubai to Atlanta. Beginning November 8, Delta will also launch a four times weekly nonstop flight from Kuwait City to Atlanta. 'In the past 12 months we have enjoyed load factors on the Dubai to Atlanta service in the mid to high 80% range,' said Manoj Kuriakose, commercial manager Middle East, Delta Air Lines. Dubai is one of over 50 new international destinations Delta has added to its network since 2005 as part of its accelerated global expansion. The flight began in 2007 as a five times weekly service and was quickly increased to six times weekly.
