Delta Air Lines is launching new daily non-stop service in 2014 to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport from San Francisco International Airport, as well as increased service to Seattle from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport.
The new service is designed to provide customers access to the airline’s growing transatlantic and transpacific network from its international gateway at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (IATA code SEA).
Details of Delta Air Lines’ new and expanded Seattle service include:
● Six new daily non-stop flights from San Francisco beginning March 29, increasing to seven daily flights on June 5;
● Two additional daily flights from Las Vegas for a total of three daily non-stop flights beginning January 6, increasing to five daily non-stop flights on April 1; and
● Two additional daily flights from Los Angeles for a total of seven daily non-stop flights beginning June 5.
“San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles are the three largest West Coast-to-Asia markets in the United States,” says Mike Medeiros, Delta’s vice president – Seattle. “Their addition into this local market will bolster domestic service as well as continue to help support our growing international portfolio in Seattle.”
Seattle is one of Delta’s fastest-growing international gateways. The airline currently operates non-stop service from SEA to six international destinations: Amsterdam, Beijing, Osaka, Paris, Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Tokyo.
Delta Air Lines also recently announced new services from SEA in 2014 to London Heathrow Airport, Hong Kong and Seoul, pending government approval.
From January 1, every international Delta flight from Seattle will feature full flat-bed seats in BusinessElite, Economy Comfort seating and entertainment on demand in every seat throughout the aircraft.
Delta’s service to SEA from San Francisco and Los Angeles will be operated by Delta Connection carrier Compass Airlines using two-class Embraer 175 regional jets, with the exception of one daily mainline flight from Los Angeles.
Additionally, Delta’s Las Vegas-Seattle service will be operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines using two-class Bombardier CRJ700 and Bombardier CRJ900 regional jets. Each aircraft is equipped with First Class and Economy Comfort seating as well as onboard Wi-Fi.
In Seattle, Delta has expanded its service to 38 peak-day departures to 16 destinations, including seven international destinations.
The airline has also invested $14 million in its facilities at Sea-Tac, including recently completed lobby renovations, a new Delta Sky Club, Sky Priority services, new gate-area power recharging stations and expanded ticket counters.
