Delta is expanding its service to Alaska this summer, including new service to Fairbanks, expanded service to Anchorage, and the return of seasonal flights to Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka.
Travelers will also enjoy increased comfort, as all flights to Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau will be operated by larger mainline aircraft like the Boeing 737-900, featuring First Class, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin service, plus more seat-back in-flight entertainment and Wi-Fi available on all flights.
“Delta is looking forward to offering more premier outdoor destinations this summer, including more options to travel to the beautiful state of Alaska, as well as providing access to the lower 48 and beyond through seamless and convenient connections over our hubs,” said Joe Esposito, senior vice president, network planning, Delta. “Our extensive network is bolstered by Delta’s commitment to award-winning hospitality, more seat-back entertainment and as always, the health and safety of everyone on board.”
Delta’s expanded Anchorage (ANC) service will include a new weekend service launching from Detroit (DTW), Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (JFK) on May 28. Year-round Seattle (SEA) service will be increased to seven daily trips starting Jun. 19. A third daily flight will be added to Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) this summer starting May 5. Daily service will also resume from Atlanta (ATL) starting May 5, providing significant connections across the southeast U.S., including 16 cities in Florida. Nonstop ATL service will continue into the fall with three trips per week.
Delta’s service to Fairbanks (FAI) will increase to six nonstop flights from its major gateway hubs, including a new daily nonstop flight from Salt Lake City (SLC) beginning May 5, and a third nonstop flight from SEA beginning Jun. 19.
The airline’s popular summer seasonal service to Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka will return, with daily flights from SEA beginning on Memorial Day weekend and extending through the end of September.
Delta is providing greater reassurance to travelers with a range of measures such as permanently eliminating change fees to provide more flexibility when booking travel, as well as creating an interactive travel map to help customers understand where Delta flies and the latest travel requirements or restrictions at their destination. The airline has also created a suite of digital tools to manage booking, test scheduling and automatic document verification all in one place on delta.com and the Fly Delta app.
