As Easy as One, Two, Three … Destinations in Hawaii

Delta offers customers expanded island flights with new service to Kona from Atlanta via Salt Lake City; Special low introductory fares promote newest Hawaiian destination

ATLANTA, Aug. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Delta Air Lines’ (NYSE:DAL) customers soon can add one more location to their list of must-see vacation sites – the “Big Island” of Hawaii. Beginning Dec. 1, Delta will offer daily direct service between Atlanta and Kona, Hawaii, and daily non-stop service between Kona and Salt Lake City. Kona joins Honolulu and Maui on Delta’s roster of exciting destinations in America’s 50th state.

“The ‘Big Island’ is a jewel in the Hawaiian island archipelago,” said Doug Blissit, vice president-Network Analysis. “The new flight to Kona will give our customers the chance to see and experience some of the most spectacular and literally ‘moving’ places on the planet in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.”

Delta’s new service begins in Atlanta and connects in Salt Lake City with no change of planes to the non-stop flight to Kona. Delta will operate the new Kona service with Boeing 767-400 aircraft. With the new service, Delta will offer 20 daily round-trip departures between the U.S. mainland and three Hawaiian destinations: Honolulu, Kona and Maui.
