Another new Delta service on the way, Detroit to Sacramento.

Earlier this week, Delta Air Lines released details of another new service it will be introducing next year. The company will be operating a daily Boeing 737-800 service between its hub at Detroit Wayne County Metropolitan Airport and Sacramento International Airport beginning 17th next year.

This new service follows on from other recent additions to the timetable the airline has recently announced from the growing hub. A service to San Jose, California starts 15th November, while a nonstop service to Honolulu is scheduled to start on 29th June.

“The new Detroit to Sacramento service will give our customers even more choice to travel between Northern California and the Eastern U.S.,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President – Network Planning.

Flights will operate on the following schedule:

The flight from Detroit Wayne County Metropolitan Airport departs at 1955 and arrives in Sacramento International Airport at 2205 local time.  The return service is timed to leave at 2250 flying overnight and arriving in Sacramento at 0614 the next morning. 

The Boeing 737-800 aircraft scheduled for the route features 16 seats in First Class, 36 in Delta Comfort+ and 108 seats in Main Cabin/economy. The aircraft type also benefits from onboard free in-flight streaming entertainment via Delta Studio and seatback screen, power ports and access to Wi-Fi available at every seat.

The airline recently took delivery its first Airbus A220 aircraft at a special ceremony in  Montreal Canada where the CEO Ed Bastian both welcomed the jet to the Delta fleet. He also denied industry rumours that the carrier is the secret buyer of financially troubled Italian airline Alitalia.
