Travelers utilizing other Delta hubs will also see increased service to Alaska, as follows:
- New weekend flights to Anchorage from New York (JFK), Detroit (DTW) and Los Angeles (LAX)
- An increase to seven daily non-stops between Seattle (SEA) and ANC, with service also becoming more frequent year-round
- New non-stop Salt Lake City (SLC) daily service to ANC year-round commences on May 5, plus a second daily summer flight joins the schedule on June 19
- Daily Atlanta (ATL) to Anchorage non-stops resume on May 5
- Fairbanks will receive a new daily non-stop from SLC as of May 5, and a third Seattle non-stop flight beginning June 19
