The service was suspended being suspended for nearly two years due to the pandemic.

The flight will operate three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday evenings, departing CVG at 6:05 p.m.
“Transatlantic travel and cargo demand from the Cincinnati region is very strong, and we’re excited that Delta is resuming this nonstop service as it supports this demand and our region’s economy,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, CVG.

“Prior to the pandemic, Delta had continuously served Paris from CVG for more than 30 years providing direct service to Paris and single connect service to more than 40 destinations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India. We’re grateful for the continued partnership.”

The sendoff was a festive — and tasty — one as airport and Delta officials cut the ribbon and first passengers and guest enjoyed fun and delicious treats in honor of the inaugural flight.
