New non-stop service to New Orleans, Long Beach brings planned Salt Lake City destinations to 100; special low fares celebrate new routes
SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 3, 2006 – Delta Air Lines’ customers will officially have 100 reasons to fly through the Salt Lake City hub this spring with the addition of the hub’s newest non-stop destinations: New Orleans, La., and Long Beach, Calif.

“Delta is proud to offer our customers more choices for travel via one of the largest airline hubs in the Western United States with the addition of our 100th Delta destination from Salt Lake City,” said Bob Cortelyou, vice president of Network Planning. “Since October, Delta customers have enjoyed the addition of flights between Salt Lake City and 11 new destinations throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada, from as far west as Kona, Hawaii to as far east as Miami. Our new service to Long Beach and New Orleans complements the growing line-up of popular business and leisure destinations Delta customers now enjoy non-stop from Salt Lake City.”
Added Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson, "Delta's presence in Salt Lake City is an incredible asset.
