Delta Air Lines to Begin Nonstop Service to Atlanta
Delta Air Lines will begin nonstop service between Boise and Atlanta, GA on November 20, 2020. The once daily, year-round flight will operate on a Boeing 737-800. With the addition of Atlanta, Boise now has nonstop service to 20 destinations across the U.S.
“Recruiting nonstop service to Atlanta has been a goal of mine since I joined the Boise Airport in 2012,” said Boise Airport Director Rebecca Hupp. “I couldn’t be happier about this announcement and look forward to working with our partners at Delta to ensure the success of this route.”
The nonstop flight to Atlanta will become the longest route served from Boise, and the furthest to the east. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is not only an excellent gateway to the east coast, but it also provides great connectivity throughout the world.
“The Boise Chamber has long been an advocate for an east coast air connection,” said Boise Chamber’s President and CEO Bill Connors. “We are thrilled that Delta is recommitting to Boise in this way, and we will do all we can to help make this route successful. Congratulations to the Boise Airport for adding an important new route to the portfolio. This is a game changer for Boise’s business community as well as our convention and visitor industry.”
Boise – Atlanta: Departs 1:30 p.m., Arrives 7:20 p.m.
Atlanta – Boise: Departs 9:40 a.m., Arrives 12:09 p.m.
Daily Departure and arrival times are localized to origination/destination time zone. Times are subject to change.
This is Delta’s fifth nonstop destination from Boise. Along with Atlanta, Delta also has nonstop service to Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and Seattle.
“Launching this service through our largest hub in Atlanta means customers are only one stop away from the people and places they want to see most,” said Scott Santoro, Delta’s Vice President – Sales. “And with our Delta CareStandard, they can rest assured that their health and safety, as well as the health and safety of our employees, remains our top priority.”
The Delta CareStandard encompasses more than 100 protective measures to ensure a safe travel experience for customers and Delta employees. Some of these layers of protection include:
- Requiring face masks throughout the travel journey at the airport and on board.
- Changing high-grade HEPA air filters on aircraft twice as often as recommended, which extract more than 99.99% of particles, including viruses.
- Upgrading filtering systems that pump air into jet bridges and parked aircraft that will result in cleaner air in those spaces during boarding and deplaning.
- Electrostatic spraying before every flight, every day and at all the airports Delta serves in the U.S.
- Blocking middle seats through Jan. 6, 2021, ensuring more space for safer travel.
- Boarding back to front to reduce touchpoints.
- Launching an unprecedented employee COVID-19 testing program, including a rapid-response option for flight crews.
- Launching antimicrobial security bins in five Delta hubs in partnership with TSA.
Delta’s Boeing 737-800 is a 160-seat aircraft, featuring 16 First Class seats and 36 Delta Comfort+ seats. Tickets are available now at Delta.com.
