Delta is expanding in Boston with new service to San Francisco and Nashville, as well as more flights to Seattle and Milwaukee.
By June 2017, the airline will have added more than 22 percent more seat capacity versus June 2014.
“We’re seeing growing demand for business travel between Boston and key markets like San Francisco, Nashville, Seattle and Milwaukee,” said Joe Esposito, Vice President-Network Planning.
“We’re meeting that demand with our industry-leading operational performance as well as innovative products and service. And as Boston plays a larger role in Delta’s overall network portfolio, the local community should expect to see additional investments as well.”
