Delta will connect its hub at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport with four daily flights to Orange County’s John Wayne Airport beginning May 1, 2016. Orange County, which is one of the top destinations for business customers in Seattle, and the region’s popular beaches and theme parks, makes the route attractive for leisure customers as well. The flights also connect well to Delta’s Asia service from Seattle.
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.”
