Delta launches new Edinburgh to Boston flight

Delta has doubled their flights from Edinburgh this summer by launching a new service to Boston’s Logan International Airport starting 24th May. The new path will add to the existing daily services to the New York-JFK already operated by Delta. The seasonal Boston route will offer customers more travel options from Edinburgh to the United States.

The new Boston flight will operate in conjunction with Delta’s joint venture partner, Virgin Atlantic. Delta has scheduled a 163-seat Boeing 757-200ER aircraft between Edinburgh and Boston, offering 16 fully flat-bed seats in the Delta One business class cabin, in-seat entertainment for every passenger, Wi-Fi access and free mobile messaging.

Dominique Kotsias, the UK account manager to Massachusetts said “We have continued to see an upward trend of UK visitors to the state in the past few years. We are so pleased that the new direct Delta flight from Edinburgh will give greater access for the Scottish market and will continue to support growth for tourism to Massachusetts.”

With the new flight making Boston and Massachusetts a very realistic destination for Scottish travellers we have provided a round up of some of the top activities that vacationers can experience across the Bay state.    

Boston – The Red Sox & Fenway Park
  There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned baseball game to soak up the Americana vibe and where better to watch a game than the oldest ballpark? Few places can rival the atmosphere at a home Red Sox game, especially an important one. Grab a hotdog and a beer and get ready to cheer on the Sox!  Summer is the perfect time to watch the Sox as it is the peak of the baseball season but if you’re not able to catch a game, you can still tour the historic stadium at your own leisure. Tickets are always in high demand so it is best to book in advance.  

Cape Cod – The Beaches
  When it comes to fantastic beaches, the arm-shaped headland, east of Massachusetts is amongst the best. JFK preserved 40 miles of the Cape Cod National Shoreline back in the 1960’s, stretching from Chatham to Provincetown. Cape Cod plays host to dozens of beaches including Town Neck, Herring Cove and Seaview Beach. All with their own picturesque landscapes, perfect for families. Cape Cod beaches offer beautiful sand, gentle surf and fantastic sunsets all year round.

Nature lovers can watch hundreds of seals basking in the sun on a low tide at Head of the Meadow beach!    

Massachusetts – Whale Trail
  Whales are one of the most fascinating animals on the planet and Massachusetts is deeply intertwined with their existence. Vacationers can now discover a one-of-a-kind collection of sites, stories, and adventures exploring the state’s connection with the planet’s biggest animal. The Massachusetts Whale Trail links nearly 40 museums, attractions, whale watching excursions, historic sites, and tours dedicated to our special connection with these beloved creatures of the deep.  

A short drive from Boston lies the New Bedford Whaling Museum. The Museum is a compelling destination that inspires all visitors to reflect on the complex issues that shaped the past, remain critical today, and inform a sustainable future. Visitors will be able to see over 750,000 items in the museum’s collection including model ships, fine art and the skeletons of blue whales.    

The Berkshires – Art Galleries
  The Berkshires that lie in the rural hills of western Massachusetts are known for beautiful and fall foliage landscapes. They are also home to some of the best art galleries in New England. Whether you’re an avid art collector or casual appreciator, there is so much to appreciate across the region. From the Norman Rockwell Museum, housing the very best American illustration art to Mass MoCA which has become of the world’s premier centres for displaying contemporary art.  

Central Massachusetts – Eric Carle Museum – Author of The Hungry Caterpillar
  Those travelling to Massachusetts with young children will love the Eric Carle Museum in Amherst. The museum is dedicated to the promotion of art and reading through picture books. The Carle collects, preserves, presents, and celebrates picture books and picture book illustrations from around the world. Children can meet some of their favourite characters in person from the Gruffalo to the Hungry Caterpillar as well as get creative with interactive craft and painting sessions. Things could get messy!
