Delta Adds Santa Barbara to Route Map

Delta is making the ‘American Riviera’ more accessible than ever with the launch of three daily year-round flights from Salt Lake City International Airport to Santa Barbara Airport, a new destination on Delta’s route map, on Aug. 12, 2019.

Santa Barbara will become the 330th destination in Delta’s expanding network and the 13th city in California served by the airline. Combined with the start of other new routes – including Detroit-San Jose in November 2018, Atlanta-Ontario in April, Detroit-Sacramento in June, and Atlanta-Burbank in July – Delta will grow the number of seats it offers from California by eight percent.

For Delta’s hub in Salt Lake City, Santa Barbara is the latest in a series of destinations that have been added in the last two years, including Cleveland, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Tampa, Florida.

With 100 miles of shoreline, 220 vineyards, several major attractions and points of interest – including Channel Islands National Park – and a thriving entertainment and dining scene, Santa Barbara has something for everyone and has been recognized as a top getaway by travel and lifestyle publications. 

Salt Lake City-Santa Barbara service will be operated by Delta Connection carrier SkyWest on a 76-seat Embraer E-175 aircraft with 12 seats in First Class, 20 seats in Delta Comfort+ and 44 seats in the Main Cabin. All flights will offer free entertainment through Delta Studio, as well as free messaging, access to Wi-Fi, and complimentary snacks and beverages.
