(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - Delta Air Lines will launch daily nonstop service next spring from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to five new destinations in the continued expansion of its West Coast hub. Included in those five new destinations are one seasonal daily flight to Ketchikan and Sitka beginning on May 15, 2015, operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines.

Delta's new service will also include:

Five daily flights to Denver, beginning June 4th (Flight operated by Delta Connection carrier Compass Airlines)

Four daily flights to Sacramento, Calif., beginning May 4th (Flight operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines)

Four daily flights to Boise, Idaho, beginning May 4th (Flight operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest Airlines)

Delta will serve the top 15 destinations in the Western U.S. with the addition of Boise, Denver and Sacramento, while Ketchikan and Sitka complete the top five destinations in Alaska. Delta will also increase its number of daily flights from Seattle to Anchorage, Alaska; Atlanta; Calgary, Alberta; Detroit; Los Angeles; San Francisco and Salt Lake City.

Delta currently operates 80 peak-day departures to 25 destinations from Seattle and will increase to 93 peak-day departures to 32 destinations in December. By next summer, Delta will offer 120 peak-day departures to 35 destinations.

The new routes will allow customers to seamlessly connect to Delta's ten long-haul international flights from Seattle, while providing compelling travel options to cities important to local customers. Earlier this year, Delta launched international service to London-Heathrow, as well as Seoul and Hong Kong and now provides more international long-haul service from Seattle than all other airlines combined. This includes the top five destinations in Asia and three of the top four destinations in Europe. Delta is the only carrier to offer nonstop service from Seattle to Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo-Haneda.
