Delta recently announced that they would be expanding their Seattle service and their most latest announcement adds four new destinations which the airline will serve non-stop from Seattle.
Delta announced the following:
Delta will be adding service from its hub at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Boston; Orlando; Pasco, Wash.; and Victoria, British Columbia. Victoria is a new destination in Delta’s network and is subject to foreign government approval. Delta will also expand its existing Bozeman, Mont., service from Seattle.
The new service includes:
- One daily year-round flight to Boston’s Logan International Airport beginning April 4, 2016.
- One daily year-round flight to Orlando International Airport beginning Dec. 19, 2015.
- Three daily year-round flights to Tri-Cities Airport in Pasco beginning Nov. 1, 2015.
- Three daily year-round flights to Victoria International Airport beginning April 4, 2016.
- One daily year-round flight to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport beginning August 1, 2015, expanded from Saturday-only seasonal service.
Flights to Boston and Orlando will operate using Boeing 737-800 and 757-200 aircraft, respectively. Bozeman, Pasco and Victoria service will be operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest using two-class, 65-seat CRJ-700 jets.
The new service is part of Delta’s previously announced plans for 2 percent system capacity growth for 2015.
Boston and Orlando service will connect Seattle with the third and fifth largest markets on the East Coast. Boston service will also provide customers one-stop access through Seattle to the top five destinations in Asia.
In addition, for a limited time, residents of Washington, Oregon and Alaska can earn Silver Medallion status in just two qualifying round trips, or even Gold Medallion status.
For those living in Seattle, this a great enhancement to the existing Delta service already. With this latest announcement, Delta will now offer 128 peak-day departures to 36 from its West Coast hub, giving Alaksa Airlines a run for their money.
