Delta has up to 71 hourly movements at Minneapolis
Minneapolis is Delta’s third-largest airport, at which the carrier has over three-quarters (77%) of all seats.
Delta will have 2,593 weekly flights each way – around 370 daily – across 120 routes in the week beginning 12 April.
Flights are down by less than 1% over the same week in 2019, OAG data shows, and up by 170% over the period in 2020.
The A319 is the top aircraft for Delta at its Minnesota hub, with nearly one-fifth of all its flights. CRJ-200s and CRJ-900s follow, with 17% each.
Narrowbodies have over half (55%) of all its flights there, followed by over four in ten by regional jets (44%).
RJs are used on 55 routes in this April week, schedules indicate, with a median sector distance of 660 kilometres. Sioux Falls, Omaha, Bismarck, Chicago MDW, and Fargo are its top-five routes for RJs.
Booking data indicates how well-balanced Delta’s Minneapolis hub is, with just over half of all passengers transiting. It has a very clear wave structure.
Delta’s Florida capacity up by 31% from Minneapolis
106 of Delta’s 120 routes are domestic, with hub-to-hub Atlanta and Detroit unsurprisingly retaining the top-two spots versus pre-coronavirus.
However, others – Sioux Falls, Phoenix, Omaha, Bismarck, and Orlando – have entered its top dozen.
Delta has 50% more flights to Orlando than the same April week in 2019. It epitomises the growth in supply to Florida – and indeed many leisure destinations from Minneapolis and the US generally.
Florida is now Delta’s second-largest state, behind California, with flights up by almost one-third (31%). Delta has 96 weekly flights to six Florida airports.
Delta’s 120 routes have a median of 21-weekly services. 53 destinations have 21+ services, including Winnipeg, its top international route, some 636 kilometres away; it’ll be served 27-weekly.
24 routes have a once-daily offering, including Myrtle Beach and Savannah – both starting on 12 April.
