“Delta has been Los Angeles’ fastest-growing airline over the last 10 years, and we continue to make significant investments in our network and customer experience from LAX,” Delta Vice President Scott Santoro said in a statement. “With new flights this year from Burbank, LAX, Ontario, and Santa Barbara, we’re giving customers throughout the LA Basin and Central Coast more travel options and access to the best customer experience, powered by the best people in the business.”

Delta has grown departures out of Omaha by more than 10 percent over the past year and will offer 22 peak-day flights in November to seven nonstop destinations. This includes a third daily flight to Delta’s New York-LaGuardia Airport hub, which launched May 1.

“Los Angeles is one of the most popular destinations in the world and we are excited that this fall, Delta Air Lines is adding a new route between the Midwest and Southern California,” Los Angeles World Airports COO Samson Mengistu said. “When visitors from Omaha arrive in Los Angeles, they will find our signature weather, a welcoming spirit and a singularly “LA” experience starting the moment they step off their plane at LAX.”

The airline’s new Omaha service is the latest investment made in Los Angeles, where Delta has grown the number of peak-day seats offered by nearly 40 percent in five years and offers more than 170 peak-day flights to nearly 60 destinations.
