May 23, 2016

ATLANTA, GA - Delta has expanded Delta Comfort+ fares to more markets. Customers can now purchase Delta Comfort+ flights for travel on or after September 19, 2016, to and from the Asia-Pacific and Latin America/Caribbean regions. This evolutionary step expands on the airline's recent launch of Delta Comfort+ fares within the US and Canada.

In March 2015, Delta introduced Delta Comfort+ as the airline's industry leading, innovative experience that offers Sky Priority boarding with dedicated overhead bin space; extra legroom; free craft beer, wine and spirits; complimentary snacks; and complimentary premium entertainment on most flights*. In November 2015, Delta began selling Delta Comfort+ as a fare for travel in the U.S. and Canada beginning on May 16.

"As Delta continues to invest in experiences designed to best serve our customers, we remain focused on making flying with Delta more enjoyable and shopping for Delta products easier, faster and more intuitive," said Tim Mapes, Delta's Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "Extending Delta Comfort+ internationally brings that simple concept to more Delta customers around the world."

Delta, which currently sells Delta Comfort+ as a fare within the U.S. and Canada, will now offer the product for flights on or after Sept. 19, 2016 for travel:

• Between the U.S. and Canada and Latin America/Caribbean regions, excluding Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Chile
