Why No Intercontinental Flights To And From SLC?

Being Delta's second largest hub, Its quite surprising to know that the only International flights to and from Salt Lake City are to Canada and Mexico. What is even more amazing is that not a single International carrier serves the airport. What might be the reason for this? I am just curious because I was there last April for a connecting flight and the airport to me seems worthy of Intercontinental services due to its size and number of passengers.

Might the same be said for Memphis? KLM sure markets MEM hard, and the result seems to be a healthy percentage of Europeans on the flight. If AF/DL wished to do the same, they could probably pull it off.

Agreed, but i dont think there would be any tourist traffic except during winter, there is literaly nothing in SLC to atract tourists during the summer months, except heat, desert and more desert.

I feel this way, Delta is to SLC as United is to Denver, or similar. neither of them seem to be really looking into international service, but mostly domestic and like billion daily flights to their other international hubs ORD/ATL corresponding.

A big part of it is that there's minimal O&D between SLC and Europe. A lot easier for Delta to route SLC passengers over hubs in JFK, CVG and ATL (and to a lesser extent, BOS, PHL, IAD, ORD, DTW, etc. where Delta planes can connect to Air France or Alitalia planes).

This has been a debate on a.net for sometime about how fit SLC is for intercontinental service. SLC might be DL's #2 hub now, but of all it's hubs and focus operations market wise it is the smallest. The greater Wasatch Front which is SLC's principle catchment area is home to roughly 2.1 million people, which makes it small for a hub of the proportion that it is in the DL network. While it is growing, it isn't growing as quickly as nearby PHX or LAS. Also nearby DEN is significantly larger. Hence the label of "Podunk," even though it is substantially larger than nearby BOI. Perhaps the greatest surprise beyond being the #2 hub for DL is that it is home to an NBA team (Utah Jazz). SLC has good access to many of the interior wests national parks from Yellowstone/Grand Teton to the north to Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches and Canyonlands to the south, and can actually enable tourists from Europe to more readily visit these parks with an RV rental than say from LAX or LAS if you include the northern parks in the mix for a two week getaway. SLC also managed to host the 2002 Winter Olympic Games which was a real coup for them, and actually did make them more known than some of the above posts seam to elude to. Hosting the Winter Olympics is something that DEN rejected back in the early 1970s, something they now regret. But probably the big knock against SLC is the dominance of the Mormon religion and how their discouragement of liquor and subsequent alcoholic beverage control laws make partying and having a good time seemingly more difficult. Utah has some of the strictest liquor control laws in the U.S. that do indeed rival if not exceed that in many southern states and Texas counties.
Could SLC support service to Europe such as LGW, CDG or even FRA or AMS? Always a good discussion on a.net!

Seeing as they had the Olympics I'm going to say you are incorrect. Worldwide many people know SLC. The bigger issue is population, tourism, and ethnicity. Other cities are larger, other cities have a larger year long tourist draw, and other cities have a larger population with families overseas.

to be honest there is no runway long enough for such service without severe restrictions so it wont be possible for a few years

western wanted to start service to london at one time and delta will start service to london and cdg once the runway is long enough. the ceo of delta spoke about this topic recently he said the flights to europe from slc were a few years off. dl needs an available aircraft and a long enough runway which right now it has neither available


I think that will be it for europe that will be the only two flights for a while. Remember the SLC area is growing at a very fast rate, the third fastest growing state in the country according to a realtors estimate i saw and only signs of more faster growth fahead. The census data also shows about the same. The future may hold more potential routes , but we will have to see thats not for a while.

Remember alot of the reason dl is investing so much in SLC is for the FUTURE they know how fast SLC is growing and they dont want to loose it to more competition and how valuable it will be in the future and SLC already makes DL money now which is what really matters so its a cheap cost effective (money making) place to connect people thru

The SLC airport is already twice as large as say montreal 11 million passengers versus 22 million with plenty of connection opportunities and good o&d to both london and paris especially with the AF connections at CDG

But if you compare to NW in MEM again, there are far more folks that DL could pick up at SLC who would either have to double connect to fly Skyteam or make a relatively inconvenient connection in ATL. From SMF, for instance, connecting over ATL to CDG adds 500 miles to a trip through ORD, 400 to a trip through LAX, and 300 to a trip through JFK.

Delta could probably make it work with at least a 5X weekly 763ER flight to CDG. There are quite a few connecting opportunities at SLC to the interior west (PHX, BOI, DEN, LAS, RNO,etc.) as well as a possibility for sizeable traffic to the surrounding ski slopes and national parks. Air France offers numerous connections out of CDG to not only Europe but Africa and even the Middle East, Indian, and Asia. Of course Paris is a quite large O&D market that could attract passengers from the interior west. Overall, the large O&D market in Paris as well as the connections at either end (and skiing/national parks near SLC) should be able to make at least a 5X weekly DL 763 work.  twocents

SLC might get one international in the near future (probably CDG or LGW).

LAX is going to be the real concentration for DL international expansion in the near future.

Both SLC and CVG have been "right-sized" according to Whitehurst and will continue to be "smaller" hubs mainly (though CVG will continue to be a LGW/CDG gateway).

ATL/JFK/LAX are going to be serious concentration points for DL's future international expansion. DL eventually wants to have a 60%/40% mix for domestic/international flight ratios and revenue flow. SLC does not fit this bill.

what are you talking about? cvg has been downsized that is correct but dl keeps adding flights to slc and wants to continue to do so, i think dl at slc is larger than ever. The last thing dl is doing is downsizing at SLC granted alot of the growth has come at cvgs expense unfortunately. The salt lake city metro area is growing so fast the last thing dl is dowing is downsizing its protecting slc for the future

SLC is deltas second largest hub it has more mainline, passengers than any hub but ATL of course which will always keep the title

SLC gets compared to both PDX and SMF for population quite frequently, but SLC must include the entire Wasatch Front from Ogden to Provo to get those numbers and the distance from say Vancouver, WA to Salem, OR is much shorter along I-5 than it is along I-15 from Weber County down through Utah County, so hence the comment from MAH4546 that PDX is twice the size even though he only included the figure for Salt Lake County (many will only include the figure for Salt Lake City proper which is under 180,000!). Probably what gives people the greatest impression that SLC is Podunk, is the attitude towards municipality population since most people in Utah don't like anything larger than say 20,000. The way the Census Bureau has set up the MSA for SLC doesn't help its cause much either.

Quoting SlcDeltaRUmd11 (Reply 15):

Most of it has come due to the demise of the DFW hub. SLC was the single biggest beneficiary of DL de-hubbing DFW.

I see LAX being very important for DL in expansion into Asia and the Far East, but I doubt they will be much of a player for DL flights to Europe. ATL and JFK for example will get all of the slots DL might get into LHR for example. I don't see LAX getting a DL LHR slot.

I don't think comparing SLC to YUL or even YYC is a very good comparison for International flights. Keep in mind that percentage wise twice as many Canadians possess passports when compared to their North American counterparts south of the 49th. Just a simple fact, a Canadian is twice as likely to get onto an intercontinental flight as an American. Hence the reason airports such as YYC and YEG get service from BA and LH rather than SLC.

Quoting DLOnur (Reply 14):

I think it would be better stated that it is an eventuality rather than not fitting the bill.

Quoting Pdxcof9 (Reply 12):

SLC and Mayor Rocky Anderson have been reluctant to sink a large chunk of money into the airport for the time being since the atmosphere of consolidation has hung over the industry as a whole until now. SLC does have plans to extend runway 34R-16L to about 15,000' which could easily accommodate any intercontinental service on a 763ER, 772LR or ER or an A330 or A340. An industry consolidation would likely send the hub DL has to DEN, PHX or LAS as I've asserted in other threads.

LAX, JFK as well as ATL will play a pivotal role in DL's international expansion, LAX offering some additional Pacific Rim flights by a U.S. flag carrier that have been discussed in several threads. SLC will primarily be a western North America domestic connection hub with offerings to Canada (YVR, YYC & YEG especially) as well as Mexico (SJD, MZT, PVR & MEX) and perhaps increasingly to the Caribbean (CUN, CZM...possibly other seasonal offerings in the years ahead). Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean flights from domestic hubs like SLC also factor into the desired 60%/40% DL executives wish to achieve in revenue generation from domestic and international service. It will be interesting to see if DL does indeed do a Europe experiment form SLC to CDG or LGW. I think at the least or most it is an eventuality.

I'm not disagreeing with you regarding SLC. SLC is important for DL, but it is not important for DL in the transformation that Whitehurst/Bastian and Grinstein have talked about and instituted system-wide. SLC will never be a major international airport--that is pretty accepted wisdom at DL.

LAX will indeed be an important player because DL wants an Asian gateway--a real one. LAX-PEK/LAX-HKG/LAX-SYD are not out of the question if you ask me. In fact, while ATL to China will probably occur next year (city to be determined), I do feel that LAX is going to fit into a more long range program with the integration of the 777's next year as well as the future order with Boeing or Airbus (the latter, I have a hard time accepting as a real alternative considering DL's fleet make up).

While SLC wil be a big domestic hub, it will never be an international hub.

JFK (unfortunately), ATL and LAX are where I am putting my bets.
