Delta Air Lines is adding seven non-stop, year-round destinations from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport this year, making 2017 its fifth consecutive year of growth at its Pacific Northwest hub.

The new destinations include Austin, Texas; Eugene, Oregon; Lihue, Hawaii; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Nashville, Tennessee; Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; and Redmond, Oregon.


Tickets on flights to the seven destinations will be available for purchase beginning Saturday, January 14.

With these additions, Delta will offer 160 peak-day flights to 49 destinations – including 16 of the top 20 destinations – from its hub at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport this summer.

Among the many aircraft types in Delta Air Lines’ massive mainline fleet is the Boeing 737-800. Delta operates 73 of the model

Delta’s new year-round services from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to the seven destinations include:

● One daily round-trip to General Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee, beginning March 9;
● Three daily round-trips to Eugene Airport, beginning April 1;
● One daily round-trip to Nashville International Airport, beginning May 26;
● One daily round-trip to Raleigh-Durham International Airport, beginning June 8;
● One daily round-trip to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, beginning June 12;
● Two daily round-trips to Redmond Municipal Airport, beginning June 12; and
● One daily flight to Lihue Airport, beginning December 21.

SkyWest Airlines, one of two massive regional airlines owned by SkyWest, Inc., operates 36 Bombardier CRJ900s on the Delta Connection network, on behalf of Delta Air Lines

Delta regional-airline partner SkyWest Airlines will operate the round-trips to Eugene and Redmond as Delta Connection services using two-class, 69-seat Bombardier CRJ700 regional jets.

SkyWest Airlines will also operate the Seattle-Milwaukee round-trip as a Delta Connection service, using 76-seat Embraer 175 regional jets.

Delta itself will operate the round-trips from Seattle to Austin and Nashville, using Airbus A319s whose cabins have recently been upgraded and which now offer on demand in-flight entertainment for all passengers. Delta will serve Lihue with Boeing 757-200s and Raleigh-Durham with Boeing 737NGs.

In addition to the new destinations, Delta will also expand service to existing destinations from Seattle. The airline will operate second daily round-trips to Boston and Orlando, an eighth daily round-trip to Portland and a fifth daily round-trip to San Diego.

Additionally, Delta will switch to larger mainline aircraft for several of its round-trips from Seattle to San Francisco and Denver.

On March 26, Delta’s joint venture partner Virgin Atlantic Airways will begin Boeing 787-9 service from Seattle to London Heathrow, replacing the flight currently operated by Delta and adding 50 seats as well as Premium Economy service.

Delta and its joint-venture partners serve more long-haul international destinations from Seattle than any other carrier, including the top five destinations in Asia and three in Europe, according to the Atlanta-based carrier.

Additionally, the Port of Seattle is expected to break ground on a new International Arrivals Facility in early 2017.
