Delta will add 11 flights and 1,660 additional seats for football fans headed to Houston from Detroit and Seattle.

As the top two college football teams clash at NRG Stadium on January 8, Delta is stepping up its game by adding 11 flights and 1,660 additional seats to ensure an unforgettable experience for fans flying to Houston.

Delta’s Game Plan

After a triumphant win by Michigan, Delta is set to kick off a new route from Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) to Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport (HOU).

This measure not only connects two major cities but also offers Wolverines fans a convenient travel option. But that’s not the only route on Delta’s playbook.

Wolverines Soar with More Options

Delta’s existing route to Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is getting a boost, providing even more flexibility for Michigan fans.

With added flights, Delta ensures that you can choose the schedule that suits you best, making your journey as seamless as a well-executed touchdown play.

No need to worry about being up in the air during the game – Delta ensures you stay connected to the excitement.
