AUSTIN, Texas – Delta Air Lines has announced four nonstop round-trip flights between Amsterdam’s Airport Schiphol (AMS) and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) during SXSW. Scheduled on March 8, 9, 14 and 18, 2018, these flights will be operated using Boeing 767-300 aircraft with 225 seats, enabling almost 1,000 fans to fly nonstop to attend the SXSW festival.
Operated in conjunction with Delta’s codeshare partners, Air France, KLM and Alitalia, the flights from Amsterdam will seamlessly connect with services from across the carriers’ joint European network, including Paris, Frankfurt and Rome.
Delta and KLM flights are available to book on the airlines’ respective websites, by calling Reservations on +31 (0)20 721 9128 or via travel agents. U.S. customers may book flights by calling 1-800-221-1212 or on www.delta.com .
“Events like the SXSW always attract thousands of international visitors so it’s important for Delta to meet the demands of our customers by offering special flights to these events,” said Dwight James, Delta’s senior vice president, Transatlantic. “This is one benefit of both our large fleet and partnership with KLM – we can schedule services across our network as demand dictates, whether that’s a summer seasonal service or these flights to Austin.”
“Delta’s AUS-AMS flights will make it even easier for global customers to experience SXSW, which last year saw 400,000+ attendees at this convergence of music, interactive, and film industries,” said Jim Smith, Executive Director, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
