Another new service from Delta Air Lines Columbus Ohio hub heads to Salt Lake City coming soon from Delta (when we say soon we actually mean next year!)

Delta has added more than 40,000 available seats from Columbus in the last year.

Delta Air Lines released details on Friday 26th October of a brand new service between Columbus International Airport and Delta’s hub at Salt Lake City International Airport beginning on 17th June next year. The new Airbus service offers more options and connections for customers travelling to and from Columbus and the western United States.  

“Our customers tell us that more choices for flights going east and west across the U.S. are important to them, and we’re pleased to offer new Columbus service to and from our Salt Lake City hub,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President – Network Planning. “This service will link Columbus to Salt Lake City and dozens of other cities in the Western U.S.”

The service will operate on Delta's Airbus A319 aircraft, with seating for 16 in First Class, 36 in Delta Comfort+ and 108 in Main Cabin. Free in-flight streaming entertainment via Delta Studio and seatback screens, power ports and access to Wi-Fi is available at every seat.

Delta’s Salt Lake City hub offers more than 250 departures to more than 90 destinations, linking dozens of West Coast and Mountain West destinations to Columbus with a single, easy connection. 

“Salt Lake City will be Delta’s 13th nonstop destination from John Glenn International and will serve the needs of a market that’s in high demand,” said Joseph R. Nardone, President and CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority.

“Salt Lake City International Airport welcomes the addition of nonstop service to Columbus,” said SLC Executive Director Bill Wyatt. “Columbus is currently SLC’s number one underserved market and this new service will offer exceptional access to the Midwest.”

The service is scheduled to depart Columbus International Airport at 0800, landing in Salt Lake City International Airport at 1016.  The return flight leaves SLC 1715 and gets in to CMH at 2243.

It’s not hard to find things to do in Columbus, in fact, with so many top attractions, the hardest thing to is to decide what to do first!

Shop at the North Market with more than 30 merchants. The Short North Arts District's galleries and boutiques are another top shopping destination. Tour the beautifully restored Ohio Statehouse and explore the shops in historic German Village. Perhaps you might want to hang out in the Heart of Africa at “Jungle” Jack Hanna’s home zoo, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium or get hands-on at COSI, a top-rated science centre featuring more than 300 interactive exhibits, including the brand new American Museum of Natural History Dinosaur Gallery. But wait, that is not all, there is more, check out Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, the only botanical garden in the world with a permanent collection of glass artwork by Dale Chihuly. Oh and for more shopping visit Easton, the Midwest's premier shopping destination. If you really want to spend even more money, then perhaps Hollywood Casino Columbus is the place for you. 

For some fresh air then the Scioto Mile in downtown Columbus features miles of multi-use trails stretching from Bicentennial Plaza in the south to North Bank Park in the North and is a great spot to take a stroll and enjoy both the city and nature. There's so much more as well, just visit

Salt Lake City is a city that might not seem like the obvious destination of choice, it's not really on the tourist trail but whether you're visiting Salt Lake for business or pleasure, you're in for a great time with so much to see and do. Like shopping, go uptown to City Creek Center where you’ll find upscale stores like Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co. and Utah Woolen Mills. East Broadway is lined with vintage and antique shops, including Jitterbug Antiques & Toys, The Green Ant and Ken Sanders Rare Books. Sugar House is a centre for eclectic shops, small galleries, and craft restaurants and bars. 

Some folks may overlook the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art in Salt Palace and offers mind-blowing modern art exhibits and its a free entry attraction, so what is not to like.  Reach for the stars at the Clark Planetarium, then you'll be hungry so some of the top eating places include Tin Angel, Cucina Toscana, Caffe Molise, Takashi, Em’s Café, and Frida Bistro oh and don't forget to try the Copper Onion. There's a whole lot more too and details can be found at
