Delta to add more routes to Seattle/Tacoma

Delta Air Lines (Atlanta) will add new daily nonstop flights to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport from San Diego International Airport and Portland International Airport as well as an additional flight from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, beginning next year. The new service will provide customers with convenient connections to the airline’s growing international network from Seattle/Tacoma.

Delta’s new and expanded Seattle/Tacoma service includes:

  • Four new daily nonstop flights from San Diego beginning on June 2, 2014.
  • Four new daily nonstop flights from Portland, Ore. beginning on September 2, 2014.
  • One summer seasonal flight from Anchorage, Alaska beginning on June 5, 2014 in addition to returning seasonal service which begins on May 23, 2014.

Delta’s new service from San Diego and Portland will be operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines (St. George) using 76-seat, two-class Bombardier CRJ900s. The additional Anchorage-Seattle seasonal service will be operated with a Boeing 737-800. Each aircraft is equipped with First Class and Economy Comfort seating as well as onboard Wi-Fi.

What message does this SEA continued build-up send to partner Alaska Airlines (Seattle/Tacoma)?
