SeaTac’s Alaska Airlines, whose financial results are among the best in the airline industry, is experiencing new competition on some of its popular routes.
Delta Airlines is inaugurating new twice-daily service April 8 between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and Los Angeles and increasing that service to three times daily during the peak summer season. Delta also is planning to compete with Alaska on its Sea-Tac-Anchorage route beginning June 10. Delta joins JetBlue Airways on that route.
Delta also is inaugurating once-daily Las Vegas-Seattle flights beginning June 10.
On the San Francisco-Seattle route, Burlingame, Calif.-based Virgin America Airlines has announced it will increase the frequency of flights on that route from five daily to six daily between July 19 and Aug. firstname.lastname@example.org
