Delta Expands Shuttle Service to Seattle

Delta Air Lines is to launch a shuttle service from Seattle to San Francisco and Los Angeles.

The Seattle Delta Shuttle service will complement existing Delta Shuttle service on the West Coast between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Delta's eight peak-day flights from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport and eight peak-day flights to San Francisco International Airport will feature the service.

Delta will also add two more daily flights from Seattle to Los Angeles for a total of 10 peak-day Delta Shuttle flights beginning 23 May 2016.

Flights to Los Angeles will be operated with a mix of Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 717 jets, while flights to San Francisco will be operated by Delta Shuttle carrier Compass Airlines using two-class, Embraer 175 jets.

"Fueled by their ideas and ambitions, Seattleites fly with purpose and deserve a product that supports their pursuits, particularly when flying between the largest business markets on the West Coast," said Mike Medeiros, Delta's Vice PresidentSeattle. "Delta Shuttle service brings a tailored, thoughtful approach to travel that starts as soon as your feet hit the curb."

Effective 11 May, Delta Shuttle customers flying from Seattle to Los Angeles and San Francisco will be able to enjoy:

- Dedicated check-in counters exclusively for Delta Shuttle customers;

- Gates located near security;

- Complimentary newspapers for all customers including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Financial Times;

- Assigned seating;

- Two classes of service with complimentary upgrades for SkyMiles Medallion members when available;

- Complimentary meals in First Class on all flights;

- Complimentary Luvo snack box offered in Comfort+ on all flights;

- Complimentary onboard snacks provided by Nourish Snacks in the main cabin;

- Complimentary in-flight beer, wine, spirits and other beverages in all classes of service, including Lagunitas Brewing Company and Fremont Brewing Company craft beer and Starbucks coffee;

- Access to in-flight Wi-Fi and free entertainment options through Delta Studio; and

- Convenient access to the new Delta Sky Club set to open in Fall 2016 on Concourse A.

All Delta Shuttle flights on the West Coast offer Wi-Fi and free entertainment options through Delta Studio.

"Since the launch of Delta Shuttle service between Los Angeles and San Francisco in 2013, we've defined what 'shuttle' means with a consistent schedule, investments in the product with local West Coast brands, and making it easier, more enjoyable and more productive to do business for customers on the West Coast," said Ranjan Goswami, Delta's Vice President Sales West. "Adding Seattle to our Delta Shuttle portfolio is a major milestone and makes it clear that Delta is focused on West Coast travelers like no other airline."
