Delta Air Lines: The African Routes, January 2009

Delta Air Lines has, in the last few years, become hugely committed to Africa, as evidenced by this stylish route map page from their January 2009 in-flight magazine. What makes this particularly interesting is that several of the routes shown here have yet to launch, and may never be realized. Of the new destinations shown here, only Abuja has been successfully added, and Cape Town's days of seeing US-registered craft ended this summer. Delta recently issued a press release, stating their recommitment to several of these routes, such as Malabo and Monrovia, in Summer 2010. We shall see.

Delta also serves the Mid-East market thoroughly, with transatlantic services to Amman, Cairo, Dubai, Kuwait, and Tel Aviv.
