Delta Expands Service At Los Angeles

ATLANTA, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) will increase service at Los Angeles International Airport with daily year-round and seasonal service to 14 destinations, including eight new markets. The additional service adds 12 percent more daily seats in the market.

The new and expanded Los Angeles service between the following cities (start dates) includes:

" Los Angeles boasts a strong domestic revenue market and we are committed to building a network that supports customer demand both locally and around the globe," said Bob Cortelyou Delta's senior vice president – Network Planning. "Our new service, combined with our domestic and international partners, positions Delta to be Los Angeles' preferred carrier."

By summer, Delta will operate 118 peak-day departures to 40 nonstop destinations, including Sydney and Tokyo, from Los Angeles. All Los Angeles service offers customers the option of first class, Economy Comfort or economy seating, along with in-flight Wi-Fi.

Customers flying from Los Angeles also benefit from Delta's agreements with domestic partner Alaska Airlines and key international carriers, including WestJet and Virgin Australia, as well as Sky Team partners Air France/KLM, Alitalia, Korean Air, Aeromexico, China Airlines China Eastern, China Southern and Aeroflot.

In 2012, Alaska Airlines relocated to Los Angeles International Airport's Terminal 6 as part of a Delta co-location strategic partnership. Customers of both airlines benefit from shorter connecting times between Delta's operation at Terminal 5 and 6 while creating more international, transcontinental and West Coast travel options.

Additionally, Delta expects to begin codesharing on flights between Los Angeles and London- Heathrow airport with partner Virgin Atlantic Airways later this year.

Los Angeles is currently one of several Delta facilities undergoing significant renovations to check-in and arrival areas as well as jet bridges to improve the airline's operational performance and overall customer experience.

Delta Air Lines serves more than 160 million customers each year. Delta was named by Fortune magazine as the most admired airline worldwide in its 2013 World's Most Admired Companies airline industry list, topping the list for the second time in three years. With an industry-leading global network, Delta and the Delta Connection carriers offer service to 319 destinations in 59 countries on six continents. Headquartered in Atlanta, Delta employs nearly 80,000 employees worldwide and operates a mainline fleet of more than 700 aircraft. The airline is a founding member of the SkyTeam global alliance and participates in the industry's leading trans-Atlantic joint venture with Air France-KLM and Alitalia. Including its worldwide alliance partners, Delta offers customers more than 15,000 daily flights, with hubs in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York-LaGuardia, New York-JFK, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Salt Lake City and Tokyo-Narita. Delta is investing more than $3 billion in airport facilities and global products, services and technology to enhance the customer experience in the air and on the ground.  Additional information is available on delta.com, Twitter @Delta, Google.com/+Delta and Facebook.com/delta.
