Delta to Fly Southern California to Seattle

New flights to Seattle

Delta Air Lines will launch a new route between Southern California's Ontario International Airport (ONT) and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) from October 1, 2020.

The new service is the latest in a series of welcomed airline announcements of new and restored air service at ONT in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Delta will operate two roundtrip flights a day on the following schedule.

"This new service by Delta continues to build momentum for ONT's recovery of passenger airline service as we climb out of the COVID-19 pandemic-caused traffic downturn," said Mark Thorpe, ONT's chief executive officer. "We believe we will continue to see airlines turn to ONT as they seek to profitably rebuild their flight schedules."

Delta will serve the route with 76-seat Embraer 175 (Enhanced Winglets) jet aircraft operated by SkyWest DBA Delta Connection offering 12 First Class, 20 Comfort Class and 44 Main Cabin seats. Tickets are now available for purchase at delta.com.

Delta continues leading the industry in providing a safer, cleaner travel experience from check-in to baggage claim. Some of Delta's health and safety measures include, but are not limited to:

  • Sanitizing all aircraft with electrostatic spraying before departure and extensive pre-flight disinfection of high-touch points throughout the aircraft interior.
  • Using state-of-the-art air circulation systems with HEPA filters that extract more than 99.99% of particles, including viruses.
  • Blocking all middle seats and limiting the number of customers per flight through Jan. 6, 2021.
  • Requiring face masks throughout the airport, in Delta Sky Clubs and on board the aircraft

Customers can also enjoy greater flexibility in case their plans change, as Delta has extended its change-fee waiver for new flights purchased through Sept. 30, 2020. See delta.com for more details on the Delta CareStandard.

The new Delta flights complement existing SEA service provided by longtime ONT carrier Alaska Airlines.

Delta resumed daily, nonstop service from ONT to its hub at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in July. It also offers frequent daily service between ONT and Salt Lake City (SLC).

More recently, Southwest Airlines restarted service between ONT and Midway International Airport in Chicago while United Airlines resumed service to Houston's George H.W. Bush Intercontinental Airport. And just last week, Volaris announced it will inaugurate nonstop service between ONT and Mexico City (MEX) in November.

ONT continues intensive efforts to keep passengers and guests safe while in the airport and to prevent the spread of the coronavirus by frequently sanitizing restrooms, gate areas, and high-touch surfaces with highly effective disinfectant, and utilizing security screening trays treated with powerful antimicrobial technology.

ONT requires appropriate face covers for all customers, visitors, and employees. Passengers are urged to wash hands with soap and water frequently and use the many hand sanitizing stations that have been added throughout ONT terminals. Vending machines including personal protective equipment such as face covers, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes are also located in passenger terminals.
