Delta Air Lines is increasing its schedule at Los Angeles International Airport, by offering daily additional year-round and seasonal service to 14 destinations, including eight new markets.
The additional service will give Delta Air Lines 12 per cent more daily seats from Los Angeles International Airport.
Delta’s new or expanded service from Los Angeles International Airport includes:
● New daily service to Nashville and three daily flights to Seattle, from April 8;
● New service to two markets in the Western U.S.: to San Jose, California, with four daily flights from July 1; and Spokane, Washington, with one daily flight from June 10;

“Los Angeles boasts a strong domestic revenue market and we are committed to building a network that supports customer demand both locally and around the globe,” says Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s senior vice president – network planning.
By summer, Delta will operate 118 peak-day departures from Los Angeles to 40 destinations, including Sydney and Tokyo. All Los Angeles service offers customers the option of first class, Economy Comfort or economy seating, along with in-flight Wi-Fi.
Customers flying from Los Angeles also can make use of Delta’s codeshare agreements with domestic partner Alaska Airlines and international carriers WestJet and Virgin Australia, as well as Sky Team partners Air France/KLM, Alitalia, Korean Air, Aeromexico, China Airlines China Eastern, China Southern and Aeroflot.
In 2012, Alaska Airlines relocated to Los Angeles International Airport’s Terminal 6 as part of a Delta co-location strategic partnership. Customers of both airlines can now experience shorter connecting times between Delta’s operation at Terminal 5 and 6 and have access to more international, transcontinental and West Coast travel options when booking.
Additionally, Delta expects to begin codesharing on flights between Los Angeles and London Heathrow Airport with partner Virgin Atlantic Airways later this year.
Delta is making significant renovations to its check-in and arrival areas at Los Angeles International Airport and is adding air bridges at various gates to improve the airline’s operational performance and overall customer experience at the airport.
