The FINANCIAL — Delta’s hub at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport will continue to grow next spring with the launch of four daily flights to Orange County’s John Wayne Airport beginning May 1, 2016.
Orange County is one of the top destinations for business customers in Seattle, and the region’s popular beaches and theme parks make it attractive for leisure customers as well. The flights also connect well to Delta’s Asia service from Seattle, according to Delta.
In all, Delta will launch service to ten destinations from Seattle between November 2015 and May 2016: Billings, Mont.; Boston; Cancun, Mexico; Edmonton, Alberta; Kona on Hawaii’s Big Island; Missoula, Mont.; Orange County; Orlando; Pasco, Wash.; and Victoria, British Columbia. Some service may be operated by Delta Connection carriers SkyWest Airlines and Compass Airlines.
“Orange County is one of the top destinations from Seattle and fills a critical component of our corporate and leisure travel demand,” said Mike Medeiros, Delta’s Vice President – Seattle. “With 10 nonstop destinations launching between November and next spring, our 3,000 Seattle-area employees look forward to serving our customers from Orange County to Shanghai and more than 30 destinations in between.”
