"Our new service, combined with our domestic and international partners, positions Delta to be Los Angeles' preferred carrier."

The additional service adds 12 percent more daily seats in the market. The new and expanded Los Angeles service between the following cities (with start dates) includes:

Los Angeles is currently one of several Delta facilities undergoing significant renovations to check-in and arrival areas as well as jet bridges to improve the airline's operational performance and overall customer experience.

By summer, Delta will operate 118 peak-day departures to 40 nonstop destinations, including Sydney and Tokyo, from Los Angeles. All Los Angeles service offers customers the option of first class, Economy Comfort or economy seating, along with in-flight Wi-Fi.

Additionally, Delta expects to begin code sharing on flights between Los Angeles and London-Heathrow airport with partner Virgin Atlantic Airways later this year.

Customers flying from Los Angeles also benefit from Delta's agreements with domestic partner Alaska Airlines and key international carriers, including 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 benefit from shorter connecting times between Delta's operation at Terminal 5 and 6 while creating more international, transcontinental and West Coast travel options.

Delta Air Lines serves more than 160 million customers each year. Additional information is available on , Twitter @Delta, and
