SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Delta Air Lines will begin offering nonstop service between Spokane and Los Angeles starting on June 10.
The daily flights will depart from Spokane International Airport at 6:45 a.m. aboard a Bombardier CRJ900 jet with 76 seats. They will arrive at LAX at 9:20 a.m.
Return service will leave LAX at 7:50 p.m., arriving in Spokane at 10:25 p.m.
Opening a direct flight from Spokane to Los Angeles has long been a goal of local community and business leaders.
The service is made possible through an air service development grant that provides up to $900,000 in federal funds combined with $200,000 in locally raised funds.
