Delta new routes to Hawaii - Salt Lake City to Maui and Seattle to Lihue

Delta has been slowly expanding their services to Hawaii and with these two new routes it will complement their existing services very well. Delta will now operate between Salt Lake City and Kahului with their 767 aircraft which will feature their lie-flat seats in the First Class cabin. Delta will also begin service between Seattle and Lihue utilizing their 757 aircraft . Both routes begin on December 21, 2017. 

The new Seattle to Lihue flight will compete directly with Alaska Air's red-eye Seattle flight which should see competitive fares on the route. The new Salt Lake City flight from Maui will offer an additional option to the already very busy Honolulu to Salt Lake City route.
