Delta announced they’ll be launching new non-stop service between Boston Logan International Airport and Las Vegas, starting October 1, 2018. The new service will be onboard one of their Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 16 in First Class, 36 in Comfort+ and 108 in the main cabin.
Currently, Spirit Airlines and JetBlue Airways offer nonstop service between Boston and Las Vegas, so it’s a nice addition to see Delta joining in on this route.
The new flights are already loaded into Delta’s site, and award pricing is as low as 10,000 SkyMiles each-way for a Main Cabin ticket on this route.
Delta is continuing its investment in Boston by reaching 112 peak day departures by this summer, an increase of 19 departures compared with summer 2017 and 29 departures over summer 2016. Delta and its partners serve 50 total destinations from Boston, including 17 international destinations and the largest transatlantic network.
Delta’s new service to Las Vegas complements numerous Boston service enhancements made in 2018. This spring Delta added new seasonal weekend service to New Orleans, Savannah, and Charleston, with Charleston service increasing to daily beginning in summer. This leisure expansion continues with new Saturday service to Aruba as of June, marking Delta’s sixth destination in the Caribbean from Boston. Additional flights to top business markets begin this summer from Boston to Nashville, Atlanta, Seattle, Kansas City, Jacksonville, and Pittsburgh.
Delta and partners offer more than 70 daily departures from Las Vegas on an average day, including proposed (pending final government approvals) joint venture partners WestJet and Korean Air and joint cooperation agreement partner Aeromexico.
Delta is trying to compete head to head with JetBlue Airways on their home turf, so it’s no surprise to hear about this latest expansion out of Boston.
