ATLANTA- As this summer season draws to a close, Delta Air Lines (DL) is already preparing for next year’s warmer months with new flights.
They are reopening nonstop service to Santa Barbara, California, and introducing new and resumed routes to destinations near other scenic spots like Yosemite National Park and Lake Tahoe.
Delta New Flights
This expansion strengthens Delta’s nonstop connections from its Atlanta hub to various cities in the U.S. West.
The airline will offer nonstop daily service to Santa Barbara and Fresno, California, resume daily flights to Burbank and Oakland, California, as well as Reno, Nevada, and expand to year-round service to Aspen, Colorado.
Additionally, Delta will launch a new route between Dallas and Seattle and resume some previously suspended routes from Salt Lake City and Detroit.
Joe Esposito, Senior Vice President of Network Planning, stated, “By reopening service to Santa Barbara and providing more access to sought-after destinations across the U.S. West, we are well-prepared to accompany our customers on their upcoming adventures, offering the same high level of service, reliability, and convenience they have come to expect when flying Delta.”
These flights are scheduled to commence next summer and will be available for booking starting on Saturday, September 16.
