ROMULUS (WWJ) –  Michiganders will now have easier access to fresh croissant. Delta Airlines has announced new year-round service between Detroit and Paris, France.

Previously, the flight was offered only on a seasonal basis. The airline says the expanded Detroit-Paris service means passengers out of Detroit Metro Airport will have more options for travel to one of Europe’s top business and leisure destinations, regardless of the season.

“The Airport Authority is extremely pleased by Delta’s continued investment in new and expanded air service from their Detroit hub, particularly at a time when airlines globally are so focused on capacity discipline,” said Wayne County Airport Authority Interim CEO Tom Naughton, in a statement. “We work hard every day to make Detroit Metro Airport a cost-competitive and profitable place for airlines to do business, and we’re delighted to see that work pay off in the form of more flights and more options for our community.”

Delta will operate a robust schedule between Detroit and Europe this summer, with nonstop service to Paris, Amsterdam, London-Heathrow, Rome and Frankfurt.

The new Paris flight will be operated with a 210-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, which features, with 36 seats in BusinessElite, 31 in Economy Comfort and 143 in Economy, through October. For winter 2012, the flight will be operated with a 298-seat Airbus A330-300 aircraft, which features 34 seats in BusinessElite, 32 in Economy Comfort and 232 in Economy.
