Delta announced today that they would be gearing up with some new service from Los Angeles to the Lone Star State. They plan to add new non-stop service from Los Angeles to Dallas/Ft. Worth, San Antonio, and Ausitn, Texas.
Delta Air Lines will launch twice-daily nonstop service from Los Angeles to San Antonio, Texas, beginning April 7, 2015. The San Antonio service complements Delta’s daily service from Los Angeles to Dallas, which launchesNov. 3, and the addition of a third daily flight between Los Angeles and Austin, Texas, beginning Nov. 2. All flights are operated by Delta Connection carrier Compass Airlines.
With the addition of San Antonio and Dallas service, Delta customers will have access to nine daily departures to three destinations between Los Angeles and Texas, including:
- Four daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
- Three daily flights to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport
- Two daily flights to San Antonio International Airport
For Texas customers, the new service also will provide more options when connecting to destinations in Delta’s trans-Pacific portfolio from Los Angeles. This includes service to Tokyo-Haneda; Tokyo-Narita; and Sydney, as well as partner-operated service to Brisbane, Australia;Guangzhou, China; Shanghai; and Taipei.
Delta is really trying to win in Los Angeles and they thnk with this new service from Texas they can steal away American Airlines customers who would normally fly out of Dallas/Ft. Worth. Delta currently operates 140 peak-day departures to 47 destinations from LAX.
