REDMOND, OR -- Delta Airlines will add two daily nonstop flights from Redmond to Seattle Tacoma International Airport, Roberts Field officials announced Friday. Flights begin June 12 and will be operated by SkyWest. The additional service between Central Oregon and SeaTac coincides with Delta's expanding service at the airline's Seattle hub.
The twice daily flights will depart from Redmond at 6 a.m. and 1:20 p.m. and depart SeaTac at 3 p.m. and 8:55 p.m. In a statement released by Roberts Field, Airport Director Zachary Bass said, "The additional capacity these Delta flights add with jet service are a great benefit to the Central Oregon communities. RDM experienced record breaking passenger numbers last year. This proves air carriers have noticed RDM's growth."
Tickets for the additional flights will be available for purchase beginning Sunday (January 15, 2017).
