Delta to Add Eight Nonstop Flights to Salt Lake City

Expanded Salt Lake City service will offer new options for connecting to the West and beyond

Building on the benefits of its recent merger with Northwest, Delta Air Lines will soon offer customers in eight additional U.S. cities daily nonstop flights between their hometown airports and Salt Lake City. The new flights, made possible by the combination of Delta’s and Northwest’s geographically distinct networks, will introduce more convenient westbound service to thousands of customers.

In addition to service to eight new cities, Delta also has expanded the number of daily frequencies between Salt Lake City and nine existing domestic destinations. By June 2009, Delta will add one additional daily round-trip flight between Salt Lake City and Baltimore; Spokane, Wash.; Oakland, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; Phoenix; St. Louis; Memphis, Tenn., and Los Angeles; and two additional daily round-trip flights between Salt Lake City and Seattle.

The new Salt Lake City routes, effective June 4, include: Bismarck, N.D. (once daily); Des Moines, Iowa (once daily); El Paso, Texas (once daily); Fargo, N.D. (once daily); Indianapolis, Ind. (once daily); Milwaukee, Wis. (twice daily); Nashville, Tenn. (once daily); and Sioux Falls, S.D. (once daily)

Beyond offering convenient connections to destinations across the Mountain West, Delta’s new Salt Lake City flights are strategically timed to allow seamless nonstop international connections, including connecting to Delta’s new five-times weekly service between Salt Lake City and Tokyo (beginning June 3)* and the airline’s existing daily nonstop service between Salt Lake City and Paris-Charles de Gaulle. Additionally, passengers making connections to Tokyo will have the option of connecting beyond Tokyo’s Narita Airport to 12 points throughout Asia.

Delta’s new Salt Lake City flights are now available for sale to customers at and via other ticketing channels.
