Delta Adds Even More Flights from Seattle…

Delta announced this morning even more new flights from their growing “global gateway” in Seattle. The new flights begin Dec. 20, 2014 and will include some interesting Saturday only flights:

  • Five daily flights to Phoenix
  • One daily seasonal flight to Palm Springs, Calif.
  • Saturday seasonal service to Tucson, Ariz.
  • Saturday seasonal service to Jackson Hole, Wyo.
  • One additional nonstop flight to Honolulu for a total of two daily flights
  • One new daily nonstop flight to Anchorage for a total of two daily flights in September and three daily flights during the summer

“As Seattle’s fastest-growing airline, we’ve doubled the number of flights we offer from a year ago to provide our customers more choice and flexibility when traveling from these key markets to the Pacific Northwest,” said Mike Medeiros, Delta’s vice president – Seattle. “This service will offer one-stop access for customers to the top international destinations while providing local travelers with more options during the winter months.”

  1. Adding five Phoenix flights on a route already flown by Alaska and U.S. Airways seems aggressive.

    The Jackson Hole service started in December 2013 on a seasonal basis (running through late March or early April 2014 to coincide with the end of ski season). Apparently the experiment this winter was a success because they’re picking it up next winter. I’ve been surprised that Alaska hasn’t tried that route already.

    I’m based in Oregon. The Alaska / Delta partnership works very well for people in the Northwest. Alaska is excellent within the Northwest and up and down the Pacific Coast, but options are limited if you’re headed east. Delta fills that void. Despite the significant fraying at the edges, I hope these airlines decide to maintain the partnership.
