Hector International Airport today announced that Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) is offering larger aircraft and First Class service on flights between Fargo and its Salt Lake City hub. The upgrade comes as Delta enhances its schedule to provide two-class service on all domestic flights longer than 750 miles.

Delta Logo"Passengers traveling from Fargo to our hub in Salt Lake City can now take advantage of two-class service on every flight, an option that's particularly valued by our business customers and members of our SkyMiles frequent flier program," Melissa McLaughlin, Delta's national sales manager for North Dakota. "It's part of Delta's commitment to North Dakota, as the state's leading airline."  

From Salt Lake City, Fargo passengers can conveniently connect to nearly 100 destinations worldwide, with nonstop service to nine international cities, including seasonal flights to Tokyo-Narita. Delta operates more than 300 daily departures at Salt Lake City.

Delta Plane"We appreciate the commitment Delta has made to our community and surrounding region. The enhancement to our Salt Lake City service will benefit our mutual customers," said Shawn Dobberstein, Fargo Municipal Airport Authority Executive Director.  

The flights to Salt Lake City, operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest, are on Bombardier CRJ-700 jet aircraft.  Delta recently announced plans to upgrade nearly 70 CRJ-700s with two-class cabins, as part of a $1 billion investment in improving the customer experience on the ground and in the air.   Salt Lake City served 20 million passengers in 2009 and currently the 22nd busiest airport in the country.
