New Air Services Added to Palm Springs International Airport

Visitors to the Greater Palm Springs area can now choose from a variety of new air services when flying to and from Palm Springs International Airport (PSP).

Delta Air Lines is adding new, seasonal nonstop air service between Atlanta and Palm Springs beginning Winter 2018. The flights will be offered between December 20, 2018, and March 30, 2019.

"The addition of this non-stop flight is a great first step for Greater Palm Springs to work with Delta on growing greater frequency from their hub airport, which is the busiest airport in the United States," said Scott White, CEO of the Greater Palm Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Later this year, travellers will have even more options to travel between Palm Springs and New York. United Airlines will offer new non-stop service between Palm Springs and Newark International Airport from December 19, 2019, through March 30, 2019. Additionally, JetBlue service between Palm Springs and JFK International Airport will return a month early this year, offering evening flights beginning on October 10, 2018.

JetBlue's premium Mint service will also be offered during the peak holiday season, December 20, 2018 through January 3, 2019.

Currently, 10 airlines fly non-stop from Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) to 18 destinations, connecting to more than 500 destinations around the world. PSP has plans on investing tens of millions over the next several years to enhance capacity and improve the traveller experience at one of the most accessible airports in the world. It was recently named one of "America's Most Stress-Free Airports" by Smarter Travel.

Since 2009, PSP origination and destination passengers have increased by 33%. Increased year-round air access can support efforts to increase both the visitor and corporate base of the Greater Palm Springs economy.
