LONDON – US carrier Delta is stepping up its presence in Texas this summer, giving customers out of Dallas Love Field one-stop access to over 125 U.S. destinations through its key hubs in Atlanta, New York and Los Angeles.

Beginning June 5, the new routes out of the airline’s now-permanent home at Gate 11 include:

  • Twice-daily service to New York-LGA
  • Twice-daily service to LAX
  • Increased frequency to Atlanta with five daily flights

Delta’s expansion in DAL complements its existing service at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), where the airline provides multiple daily offerings to eight of its nine U.S. hubs.

As of July 2023, Delta will operate nearly 40 peak-day departures to eight destinations from DAL and DFW combined, giving customers access to three of the top five destinations to/from Dallas and be the only carrier operating service to New York and Los Angeles from both Dallas airports.

“After a nearly decade-long effort, Delta has secured long-term access at Dallas Love Field, giving us the ability to serve more customers in Dallas and North Texas for years to come,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President – Network Planning.

“These new routes that will operate from a Delta-dedicated gate signal the continuation of Delta’s ongoing investments in Texas and our commitment to serving this community with flights to their top destinations.”

All flights will operate on an Airbus A319 aircraft, equipped with fast, free Wi-Fi (just launched this month) and in-flight entertainment screens featuring thousands of hours of movies, TV shows, podcasts and exclusive partner-curated content from Spotify and more.

Customers will have even more to enjoy while at 30,000 feet, such as refreshed onboard snacks and beverages, including espresso martinis and rosé wine for purchase.

“Dallas is a city on the move and on the rise, and you can add Delta’s expansion at Dallas Love Field to our city’s ever-expanding list of major economic wins in recent years,” said Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson.

“These new routes will provide our residents and workers with more options for travel while bringing more visitors to Dallas to experience all the great opportunities and amazing amenities that our city has to offer.”

Delta continues to expand its Texas offerings, with more than 20% more seats available this summer (compared to last July), including added capacity from major cities including Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.

Austin has been the fastest growing airport since 2019, due in part to the city’s strong economic growth and thriving tech industry. To better accommodate the surge in travelers, Delta is boosting domestic service this summer, operating nearly 40 peak-day departures to 10 major cities.

This domestic growth complements Delta’s international partner service to key global hubs in Mexico City, Amsterdam, and London Heathrow, providing Austin customers with easy, nonstop access to destinations around the world.

Customers can also look forward to returning routes from San Antonio and Harlingen, including:

SAT-JFK restarting May 8, operating on an Airbus A220, a route not flown since 2020

Seasonal service between HRL-MSP beginning February 17, operating on an Airbus A320

The airline is improving the customer experience and fostering loyalty by operating brand-new, cutting-edge aircraft such as the A321neo, providing thoughtful products and services onboard, and opening the airports of the future.

With service to more than 275 destinations on six continents, customers in Texas can look forward to seamlessly connected journey, no matter where their final destination may be.
