US airline Delta has announced that it will introduce eight new flights from its hub at Salt Lake City.
The world’s largest airline will offer thousands of passengers travelling from Salt Lake City the chance to connect with new destinations in the west of the country.
New flights will be launched to Bismarck, Des Moines, El Paso, Fargo, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Nashville and Sioux Falls on June 4th.
Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s senior vice-president of Network Planning, said: "The addition of new nonstop flights and added frequencies from Delta’s Salt Lake City hub means thousands of airline customers will have faster options for connecting across the Mountain West to points around the world."
In addition to the new flights, Delta will increase the number of flights between Salt Lake City and its nine existing destinations in the US.
All routes will see one extra daily flight with the exception of Salt Lake City to Seattle, which will benefit from two additional daily flights.
Figures obtained from Delta Air Lines show that its traffic in January 2009 decreased by 2.2 percent compared to January 2008.
