Delta eyeing continued growth in Seattle

Delta is kicking off the New Year with a 10 percent increase in peak-day seats at its Seattle hub for summer 2018, driven by the addition of three new destinations as well as more flights and larger aircraft operating between existing routes.

The new destinations include Washington-Dulles and Kansas City, which will launch June 8, and Indianapolis, which will launch June 18.

“In 2012, we made a commitment to be Seattle’s global airline, and we are delivering with our sixth straight year of growth,” said Tony Gonchar, Delta’s Vice President — Seattle. “Seattle and Washington State residents have strongly supported Delta’s growth, and we’re responding with even more destinations, flights and product enhancements in 2018.”

Delta will offer one daily round-trip each to Washington Dulles International Airport, Kansas City International Airport, and Indianapolis International Airport. Washington-Dulles service will be operated using Boeing 737-800 aircraft, Kansas City service will be operated using E-175 aircraft, and Indianapolis service will be operated using Airbus A 319 aircraft.
