The carrier will serve ANC from seven points in the mainland, including the airport’s longest regularly scheduled nonstop route, to Atlanta (ATL), beginning with daily service on May 5 and continuing into the fall with three-times-weekly flights. Clocking in at 3,416 miles and over seven hours, Delta will fly the route with a Boeing 767-300, equipped with lie-flat business-class pods.

Delta will also add or boost flights to Anchorage (ANC) from its other hubs, as follows:
  • Detroit (DTW), Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (JFK) — new weekend service launching on May 28
  • Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) — Third daily flight for the summer, beginning on May 5
  • Salt Lake City (SLC) — One year-round nonstop; second summer seasonal route beginning June 19
  • Seattle (SEA) — Up to seven daily flights starting June 19
Fairbanks (FAI) will also see a significant service boost, jumping to six nonstop flights from across the Delta network, as follows:
  • Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) — Going double-daily with a second flight beginning June 19
  • Salt Lake City (SLC) — New daily nonstop flight launching May 5
  • Seattle (SEA) — Adding a third frequency beginning June 19
Finally, Delta will fly daily seasonal flights from Seattle (SEA) to Juneau (JNU), Ketchikan (KTN) and Sitka (SIT) beginning on Memorial Day weekend through the end of September.

For Delta, it’s not just about the new routes. The carrier is also upgauging equipment as part of its Alaska expansion.

In addition to wide-body Boeing 767 service from Atlanta, all flights will be flown by either a Boeing 737-800, -900 or 757-200. The only exceptions are the two routes to KTN and SIT, which will be flown by Delta Connection partner SkyWest Airlines on an Embraer 175.

Doesn't Delta do seasonal service to ANC and FAI every summer?

Some welcome news. Now please, step up the inflight service. The we can't do it because "safety" is getting old. The (tax payer) money is there.

I wonder if some of these - the ones that are 757 were supposed to be and may be 321 neo routes next year
Atl, nyc, dtw
Per Airbus site 321 neo has 4,000 nm range not sure with our config.

Seems like Delta is going to be left behind. Every other airline (except AA I think) still has all their pilots current and trained and ready to go. We have a huge amount NQAT and in "affected status."

Haven’t you heard? They’ll all be back and ready by the end of the summer travel period.
