Seattle is the center of one of the airline industry’s biggest turf wars, and the ultimate victor may be Northwest business travelers, both domestic and international.
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has long been a hub for Alaska Airlines, which currently runs 253 flights out of Seattle daily to 79 different locations in North America. But Delta Airlines has been aggressively expanding its Seattle operation, and is now the number two carrier in the market. In May of this year, the worlds’ second largest airline announced it will add several new destinations from Seattle—Spokane, Calgary, Alberta, Maui, Bozeman, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta. By 2017, Delta plans to offer more than 150 daily flights from Seattle to compete for business.
