Delta announced today that they would continue to expand their service in Seattle, as they take on Alaska Airlines.

Delta Air Lines

Delta’s new Seattle service beginning Nov. 3, 2014, includes:

  • Four daily flights to Spokane International Airport using two-class, 65-seat CRJ-700 aircraft
  • Two daily flights to Calgary International Airport using two-class, 76-seat Embraer E-175 aircraft

New Seattle service beginning Dec. 20, 2014, includes:

  • One daily flight to Maui’s Kahului Airport using a Boeing 757-200 aircraft
  • One daily seasonal flight to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport through Jan. 4, 2015, then Saturday service from Jan. 10 through March 28, 2015, using two-class, 76-seat Embraer E-175 aircraft
  • Four weekly flights to Los Cabos International Airport through Jan. 10, 2015, then Saturday service beginning Jan. 17, 2015, using an Airbus A319 aircraft
  • Four weekly flights to Puerto Vallarta’s Licenciado Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport through Jan. 10, 2015, then Saturday service beginning Jan. 17, 2015, using an Airbus A319 aircraft

Delta began nonstop international service in March to London-Heathrow and will begin nonstop service to Seoul and Hong Kong on June 2 and 16, respectively. The airline is in the process of beginning significant new Seattle growth to markets including San Francisco; Fairbanks, Alaska; Juneau, Alaska; San Jose, Calif.; San Diego; Vancouver, British Columbia; Portland, Ore.; Phoenix; Palm Springs, Calif.; Tucson, Ariz.; and Jackson Hole, Wyo. as well as expanded service to Anchorage; Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

In February, Delta launched a double miles promotion for Seattle-based SkyMiles members for flights through Dec. 31, 2014.

Bottom Line

As Delta continues to compete with Alaska Airlines in Seattle, I think the biggest winners are the Seattle fliers, who will see more non-stop flights out of Seattle.
