Delta Air Lines will continue its expansion from Seattle Tacoma International airport with five new routes, as it aims for 86 peak day departures by August.

The Atlanta-based SkyTeam alliance carrier will begin four-times daily service to Spokane on 65-seat Bombardier CRJ700 aircraft and two-times daily service to Calgary on 76-seat Embraer 175 aircraft on 3 November.

On 20 December, Delta will add once daily seasonal service to Bozeman on an E175, once daily service to Kahului (Maui) on a Boeing 757-200, four-times weekly service to Los Cabos on an Airbus A319 and four-times weekly service Puerto Vallarta on an A319.

Bozeman service will decrease Saturday-only on 4 January 2015 and end on 28 March 2015, and both Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta service will decrease to Saturday-only on 17 January 2015.

“As part of our expanding network, Seattle customers will now have direct jet service to popular ski and beach destinations while enjoying Delta's investments in the airport as well as onboard every flight," says Mike Medeiros, vice-president of Seattle at Delta, in a statement.

Alaska Airlines is the only airline on the Seattle-Bozeman, Seattle-Kahului, Seattle-Los Cabos, Seattle-Puerto Vallarta and Seattle-Spokane routes, while both Air Canada and Alaska fly the Seattle-Calgary route, Innovata schedules show.
