Delta Adding Nonstop Boise to Seattle Flights in May 2015


A major airline plans to begin nonstop service between Boise and Seattle.

Beginning in May 2015, Delta Airlines will add four daily flights between the City of Trees and the Emerald City. Tickets will go on sale beginning Saturday, Nov. 22, and the first direct flight between the two cities takes off May 4, 2015.

"We are so pleased that Delta is bringing the residents and businesses of Boise more connections to Seattle, a key city in this region of the country," wrote Boise Mayor Dave Bieter in a press release. 

Though the first tickets will go on sale this weekend, there's no word yet on how much they'll cost. Alaska Airlines also offers nonstop flights to Seattle.
