Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) said it will launch five daily flights from Los Angeles International Airport to Denver International Airport beginning June 1, 2016, closing a key gap for its corporate customers in Los Angeles.
Delta´s Denver service will provide one-stop connecting service to several key international destinations through LAX, including Sydney and Brisbane through Delta´s partnership with Virgin Australia as well as Tokyo-Haneda.
The service will also complement Delta´s recent growth in Los Angeles, which includes the launch of nonstop service to Shanghai. In 2016, Delta will begin operating Boeing 717 aircraft on all Delta Shuttle flights between Los Angeles and San Francisco, increase to 10 daily flights to both New York-JFK and Seattle and add a third daily flight to Boston. Delta´s seat growth in Los Angeles has grown more than 99 percent since 2009, the most of any carrier.
Delta´s Los Angeles to Denver flights will be operated on the following schedule by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines using two-class, 76-seat CRJ-900 aircraft.
