Delta to Increase Flights at Dallas Love Field
Delta Air Lines announced it will add 18 daily nonstop flights to five cities from Dallas Love Field Airport in October 2014.
The expansion of the airport’s service will follow changes made to the Wright Amendment, which currently restricts service from Dallas Love Field to Texas, adjacent states, and Missouri, Alabama, Kansas, and Missouri. The restrictions are scheduled to end next October.
Delta will add service from Dallas Love to New York’s LaGuardia, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Minneapolis-St. Paul. The carrier will also add an additional two daily flights to its already existing Atlanta service.
To operate these flights, Delta has asked the Department of Justice to allow it to bid on access to gates at Love Field as part of the divestiture of gates relating to the American Airlines-US Airways merger.
With the addition of these flights, Delta would operate a total of 68 daily flights from the Dallas/Fort Worth region, including flights at Dalls/Fort Worth International Airport.
