Spokane to Los Angeles in One Simple Step

airport(Spokane, WA)  One big announcement from a major air carrier means it’s almost twice as easy for travel between Spokane and Los Angeles.

Delta Airlines is set to begin daily, non-stop direct service between Spokane International Airport (GEG) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Delta made the announcement February 19 at a Spokane press conference.

“We are so thrilled with this new service,” said Cheryl Kilday, President & CEO of Visit Spokane. “When we talk about the convenience factor of our airport, this new Delta service provides a big lift to our air lift!”

The new route begins June 10. The first jet – A 76-seat  Bombardier CRJ-900 – will depart GEG at 6:45am and arrive at LAX at 9:20am. This daily schedule shaves almost half the time it currently takes to make the trip on other carriers, which include one or more stops.

“Besides the added convenience for business and leisure travelers, the new service enhances access for groups, conventions and other tours,” said Keith Backsen, Visit Spokane Vice President and Director of Sales. “Anything that makes it even easier for groups to get here is essential to keep us in – and on top of – the game,” said Backsen. “This just adds to all the other features that have made Spokane a hot commodity in the meetings and convention world.”
