Delta announced they’ll be adding several news flights and routes to the state of Alaska starting this summer. We’ll see expanded service to Anchorage (ANC), Fairbanks (FAI), Juneau (JNU), Ketchikan (KTN) and Sitka (SIT).

Delta’s latest additions are a direct result of increased result of leisure flying over business travel, which the airline hopes to capture additional revenue as they realign their flight schedule.
