Delta Air Lines is expanding its lineup in Boston with nonstop service to Miami.

The service will begin Dec. 21, Delta announced, with two daily round-trip flights on Airbus A320 aircraft.

The addition continues a recent growth spurt for Delta in Boston, where it is increasingly battling JetBlue – the current top carrier.

Delta has added numerous new Boston routes during the past year, including flights to destinations like Chicago O’Hare, Cleveland, Newark Liberty and Washington Reagan National. The carrier also has boosted frequencies on a number of existing routes.

"It's been a tremendous year for Delta in Boston already, and we continue to keep climbing with new routes and frequencies, award-winning service, and industry-leading reliability that sets Delta apart," Charlie Schewe, Delta's Director-New England Sales, said in a statement.

Delta will compete head-to-head on the Boston-Miami route with American, which operates a major connecting hub in Miami. JetBlue does not fly to Miami but it does fly from Boston to Fort Lauderdale, where it operates a focus city. Spirit Airlines also flies nonstop between Boston and Fort Lauderdale, 25 miles north of central Miami.

With the addition of Miami, Delta will fly nonstop to 52 destinations from Boston.
