Delta’s new Victoria-Seattle flights make Europe, Asia more accessible

VICTORIA — Delta Air Lines’ new three times daily year-round flights between Victoria International Airport and its hub at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport will be operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest using two-class, 65-seat CRJ-700 jets.

“New flights are important, but new destinations are even more significant,” said Mike Medeiros, Delta’s Vice President – Seattle. “We look forward to establishing a relationship with our neighbors to the north in Victoria while serving their travel needs with a two-cabin jet aircraft they haven’t yet experienced on this route.”

Added Steven Larkin, Delta’s Director of Sales – Canada: “A 30-minute flight opens up a world of possibilities for our Canada customers flying from Victoria to Seattle. This flight makes global business centres more accessible from Victoria through Delta’s hub in Seattle, including eight international destinations in Europe and Asia.”

With the addition of Victoria, Delta operates 81 peak-day flights from 12 cities in Canada. In all, Delta’s customers in Canada have access to 92 daily flights, including 11 additional flights through Delta’s codeshare partnership with WestJet. All Delta-operated flights offer WiFi.

This summer, Delta will offer more than 150 peak-day departures from its hub in Seattle, which will allow Victoria customers to connect to 43 destinations. Delta also offers service to Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton from Seattle. Some flights are operated by Delta Connection carriers Endeavor Air, SkyWest Airlines and Compass Airlines.
