Immediately after the news came out of the new Aer Lingus Dublin to Minneapolis flights Delta dropped its very own flight announcement. The American aviation giant will also be flying the exact same route in the 2024 Summer season. Here’s how it’ll work and there is to know for you to get started booking your flight.
About the New Delta Air Lines DL114 Minneapolis to Dublin Flight
Delta already operates year round flights to Ireland from New York’s JFK airport and seasonal connections from Atlanta and Boston, however it was lacking such a service from its other mega-hub in Minneapolis-Saint Paul international airport (MSP).
Connecting Dublin to Minneapolis with the new DL114 flight allows Delta and SkyTeam passengers to conveniently transfer to onward services within the US.
However the airline won’t be committing to a daily or year round service just yet. The new Minneapolis to Dublin flight will start off as a seasonal flight. Flights will be available during the 2024 summer season 5 times a week.
The first service on DL114 Minneapolis to Dublin is scheduled to take off on May 9th 2024.
The New DL114 Flight From Minneapolis to Dublin Schedule
The new Delta Air Lines flight DL114 will have a 5 times weekly frequency, as previously mentioned, and will follow this schedule:

The Plane For The New Delta DL114 Minneapolis to Dublin Flight
The plane chosen by the airline to operate this new transatlantic service is nothing to write home about. The carrier will be flying the route using its fleet of Boeing 767-300. The Delta 767 fleet has a rather high average age of 25 years, with most of them having been delivered in the ’90s.
The interior however doesn’t date back to the same years as the airline has revamped them along the years. The DL 767-300s that will fly the Minneapolis to Dublin route feature a 3 (almost 4) class configuration with:
- 26 Business Class, Delta One, flat bed seats. These are the Vantage seats by Thompson Aerospace and have a 1-2-1 layout.
