BOISE --- Delta Air Lines will offer travelers nonstop service between Boise and Los Angeles International Airport beginning in June. Boise Airport officials made the announcement Monday.

The new jet service, a 76-seat Embraer 175 operated by Delta Connection, offers Wi-Fi connectivity and First Class cabin amenities. The flight will originate in Los Angeles on Thursday, June 5th and overnight in Boise for the early morning departure on Friday.

Here is the Daily Schedule -

The Boise flight is part of Delta's larger strategy to grow its presence at Los Angeles Airport.

With direct access to all of the key U.S. tech markets, as well as additional Latin service through our gateway at LAX, we can continue to provide business and leisure customers with the best service options to meet their travel needs, said Bob Cortelyou, Delta's senior vice president - Network Planning. Los Angeles is a key market for Delta as we continue growing our presence on the U.S. West Coast.

According to Delta, this new service will provide customers one-stop service to Tokyo-Narita, Tokyo-Haneda, and Sidney, Australia through Delta's international gateway in Los Angeles.

We are pleased Delta sees opportunity for growth in the Boise region and that they have chosen to dedicate their valuable resources to our market. The new Delta flight will provide Boise passengers with an additional choice when traveling to Southern California, as well as valuable connection options for international travel. said Boise Airport Director Rebecca Hupp.

This comes on the heels of Southwest Airlines announcing it will offer seasonal daily flights from Boise to Chicago Midway, and Alaska Airlines offering daily service to Salt Lake City. Both routes will be available in June.
