Delta to Begin Washington/Salt Lake Nonstop

Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) will offer customers new nonstop service between Washington, D.C., Reagan National Airport and Salt Lake City International Airport beginning on Jan. 31, 2003.
Delta will operate one daily round-trip flight using Boeing 757 aircraft with 183 seats and a two-class seating configuration. In addition to the new flight between Salt Lake City and Reagan National, Delta will continue to offer two flights daily between Salt Lake City and Washington Dulles International Airport.

The United States Department of Transportation recently approved Delta’s application to operate the daily nonstop service connecting Salt Lake City and Reagan National Airport.

“The new nonstop flight provides easy new access to the nation’s capital for customers in Salt Lake City and throughout the Intermountain region, while offering Washington, D.C., travelers single connections to destinations throughout the West via Delta’s Salt Lake City hub,” said Subodh Karnik, Delta’s senior vice president - Network and Revenue Management.

“The new service will allow Delta to compete more effectively in the Washington, D.C., region as we offer service between both Reagan National and Dulles International airports and our Salt Lake City hub,” he said.

At the Salt Lake City hub, Delta and the Delta Connection carriers offer more than 280 daily departures with nonstop service to 64 destinations.
