Delta Expands Summer 2007 With More Flights From U.S. Hubs, Gateways In Los Angeles, New York City, Salt Lake City


Building on the more than 19 new destinations already announced for summer 2007, Delta Air Lines will add two new cities and four more domestic routes from its U.S. hubs and gateways in Los Angeles, Salt Lake City and New York City. With the additions, Delta now plans to offer customers access to 21 new worldwide destinations during the peak summer travel season. Delta’s newest routes, effective this June, are as follows:

-- Los Angeles to Portland, Oregon (effective June 7)**;
-- New York-JFK to St. Louis, Mo. (effective June 7)*;
-- New York-LaGuardia to Myrtle Beach, S.C. (effective June 7)*;
-- Salt Lake City to Birmingham, Ala. (effective June 7)**
-- Salt Lake City to San Luis Obispo, Calif. (effective June 11)**; and
-- New York-JFK to Nantucket, Mass. (effective June 14)***

With its latest additions, Delta and the Delta Connection carriers will offer customers service to more than 330 worldwide destinations this June -- more than any other global airline.

“Delta continues to expand our reach both at home and abroad to make it easier for customers to choose Delta for travel on most any itinerary. From the beaches of Nantucket to the vineyards in San Louis Obispo, Delta continues to offer our customers an expanded choice of cities for vacation planning or business,” said Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s vice president -- Network Planning. “Delta’s summer 2007 schedule reflects our continued commitment to increasing customer choice with 21 new destinations coming online between April and July.”

Each of the new routes announced today connects customers to the world through one of Delta’s fastest growing U.S. gateways -- Los Angeles, Salt Lake City and New York City -- and is timed to maximize connecting opportunities to other Delta flights.
All of Delta’s expanded service announced today will be operated by Delta Connection carriers using regional jet aircraft seating between 50 and 70 passengers with no middle seats. Longer-haul routes, such as Salt Lake City to Birmingham, feature CRJ900 aircraft that add the comfort and convenience of 10 first class seats to the 60-seat Economy class cabin.
