Another regional airport has added a nonstop flight to Paris.

Delta, in partnership Air France KLM, will bring nonstop trans-Atlantic service from Indianapolis to its European hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle beginning in May 2018. Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport was the only airport in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio that offered nonstop, trans-Atlantic service.

The service will be on Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, equipped with 25 fully lie-flat seats in Delta One, 29 seats Delta Comfort+ and 171 seats in the Main Cabin.
