Seattle is still most popular airline destination from Spokane’s airport

So Delta Airlines in Novermber is adding four daily flights from Spokane to Seattle.

Here's the story version:

Delta Air Lines will add four daily flights to Seattle from Spokane starting Nov. 3.

At present only Alaska Airlines flies to and from Seattle from Spokane. In January 2012 Southwest Airlines stopped providing service between the two cities.

The daily flights from Spokane are scheduled to leave at 8:25 a.m., 10 a.m., 3:35 p.m. and 7:05 p.m. Return flights leave Sea-Tac International Airport at 6:50 a.m., 10 a.m., 1:35 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

The flights between Seattle and Spokane will use Bombardier 65-seat CRJ-700 aircraft.

Delta is also adding Seattle to Bozeman flights starting Dec. 20.

In recent years Seattle has been the most frequent destination for Spokane passengers, according to federal transportation

numbers. The next four most frequent connections are Las Vegas, Phoenix, Portland and Denver.

 

Here are the latest data from the Federal Aviation Administration for total passengers from Spokane, based on 2013 flights:
