Delta plans to increase services on a number of regional routes.
Building on the success of its recently launched Seattle-Austin route, a second daily nonstop flight will depart Seattle in the morning, starting October 1.
In addition, Delta will add a daily nonstop service from Seattle to Medford in Oregon from the same date. Medford is Delta’s ninth Pacific Northwest destination from Seattle, joining a new service launched to Eugene and Redmond in Oregon.
Flights will depart once a day between Seattle and Medford, operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines using a 76-seat, two-class E-75s equipped with first class and Comfort+ seating, as well as onboard wifi.
Delta’s vice president for Seattle, John Caldwell, said:
“Our Austin flight has been tremendously popular, and with this additional flight, we offer Seattle customers the best schedule options for business travel with a morning and afternoon departure from both cities.”
“Additionally, our new service to Medford means we now can offer customers access to nine daily destinations throughout the Pacific Northwest from our Sea-Tac hub.”
Schedules as follows:
|Seattle (SEA) at 0815||Austin (AUS) at 1430|
|Seattle (SEA) at 1700||Austin (AUS) at 2300|
|Seattle (SEA) at 1910||Medford (MFR) at 2020|
|Austin (AUS) at 0700||Seattle (SEA) at 0900|
|Austin (AUS) at 1515||Seattle (SEA) at 1800|

The US carrier has added seven daily year-round destinations from Seattle since July last year. These include Austin, Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; Eugene, Oregon; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Chicago, Illinois; Redmond, Oregon; and Raleigh, North Carolina.
Service to Lihue in Hawaii will begin in December this year.
Flights from Seattle to Boston and Orlando are also set to increase, with a second daily flight on each route, a fifth daily flight to Orange County and San Diego, and an eighth daily flight to Portland.
