On 1 May, Boise Airport and Delta Air Lines celebrated the start of the SkyTeam member’s 26 weekly departures to Seattle-Tacoma. Flying in competition with Alaska Airlines’ 64 weekly flights, Delta will be using its CRJ 700s on the sector.
- Delta Air Lines expanded its European offering from Salt Lake City (SLC) on 1 May, with the addition of five weekly flights to Amsterdam (AMS). The airline’s second European route from Salt Lake City (as it already flies daily to Paris CDG) will be served five times weekly by the airline’s 211-seat 767-300s, but will see a frequency increase to daily starting on 17 May. No other airline flies this route. In addition, the SkyTeam member increased its domestic offering from Seattle-Tacoma (SEA), with 26 weekly flights to Boise (BOI) in Idaho on 1 May using its 65-seat CRJ 700s as well as with 27 weekly departures to Sacramento (SMF) in California on 4 May using a mixed fleet of its 65-seat CRJ 700s and 76-seat E175s. While the sector to Boise is already operated by Alaska Airlines (64 times weekly), Delta will also face competition on the 974-kilometre route to Sacramento from Alaska Airlines (39 weekly flights) and Southwest Airlines (27 weekly departures).
