Delta further bolsters its Sea-Tac schedule

Delta Air Lines, the fast-growing number two airline at Sea-Tac Airport, is further beefing up its repertoire of flights from the airport next summer.

Atlanta-based Delta this week said it is adding six additional flights from Sea-Tac next summer to destinations it already serves. Delta in the last 18 months has created a domestic network from Sea-Tac designed to serve a growing schedule of international flights from the airport.

The new additions will raise the number of Delta flights from Sea-Tac to Anchorage from four daily to six, to Atlanta from six to seven, to Calgary from two to three, to Los Angeles from seven to eight and from San Francisco from seven to eight daily.

All of those routes are ones flown be Sea-Tac’s dominant airline, Alaska Airlines. Delta, a code-sharing partner with Alaska, has added its own flights to bolster the feed traffic to and from its international flights from Sea-Tac. Delta is making Sea-Tac its international hub on the West Coast. It has non-stop flights from Sea-Tac to Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul and Tokyo’s two airports, Narita and Haneda. The airline also serves London, Paris and Amsterdam from Sea-Tac.

Delta recently also added several new domestic destinations from Sea-Tac including Sacramento, Boise, Ketchikan, Sitka and Denver.
