Delta Air Lines announced over the weekend that it will soon offer daily, year-round nonstop flights from Tampa International Airport to Salt Lake City. The service will begin on Dec. 21, 2017, and tickets are available now.
Salt Lake City, known for its surrounding mountain ranges and ski resorts, has been among TPA’s top target markets and helps round out its service to the western part of the country. Daily, year-round service is projected to generate more than $16 million in economic impact to the Tampa Bay region.
“Salt Lake City is one of our largest unserved destinations and we’re pleased to now offer the ease and convenience of nonstop connections to Salt Lake City International Airport,” said Joe Lopano, CEO of Tampa International Airport. “We know this route will be popular among our skiing and adventure-seeking leisure travelers, and likewise, we expect lots of visitors from Utah and surrounding states to come enjoy our beautiful beaches and warm weather.”
The new service is also good news for fans of Delta, which already offers nonstop flights from Tampa to popular destinations such as Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Boston and Cancun.
“Delta has a decades-long history of serving Tampa customers and we’re excited to add nonstop service to our Salt Lake City hub, where they can experience the great outdoor recreation and business-friendly environment Utah is known for,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s Vice President, Network Planning – Americas. “Customers will also have easy, one-stop access to dozens of other destinations in the western U.S.”
