Hits smaller text tool iconmedium text tool iconlarger text tool icon
Delta Air Lines will add three daily flights between Los Angeles and Seattle, beginning April 8, 2013, operated by its Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines.

Delta is rapidly growing Seattle as an Asian gateway and recently received approval for new service to Shanghai for summer 2013. The airline currently offers international service to Beijing and Osaka, Japan.

crj900_1Delta also has an extensive codeshare agreement with Alaska Airlines in Seattle, providing customers access to more than 50 domestic markets. From Los Angeles, customers can enjoy nonstop service to destinations including Sydney and Tokyo, as well as codeshare flights with Virgin Australia to Melbourne and Brisbane.

The new service will be using SkyWest's 76-seat two-class CRJ900 regional jets. In addition to a first class cabin, these aircraft are equipped with onboard WiFi and Delta's snack, food for purchase and beverage offerings.

Delta currently operates the world's largest WiFi-equipped fleet, and plans to introduce WiFi onboard international widebody aircraft in 2013.

By summer 2013, all trans-Pacific flights will feature Delta's full flat-bed product in Business Elite. In addition, Delta is in the process of upgrading its facilities at both Los Angeles International Airport and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport as part of its ongoing $3 billion investment to improve products, services and facilities.

Delta Air Lines serves more than 160 million customers each year. During the past year, Delta won 33 airline industry awards. Customers can check in for flights, print boarding passes, check bags and review flight status at
