Delta Targets Southwest Territory


  • Travelers to and from North Texas will have new options this summer as Delta Airlines begins offering new daily flights out of Dallas Love Field.
  • The Atlanta-based airline said that starting June 5, customers will have access to several new routes from its new permanent home at gate 11, including twice daily service to New York-LGA, twice daily service to LAX, and five daily flights to Atlanta. From these hubs, travelers will have one-stop access to over 125 destinations across the United States.
  • Delta will also maintain its existing service at DFW Airport and as of July 2023, will offer almost 40 departures on peak days to eight destinations from both airports combined. The airline will also be the only carrier that operates routes to New York and Los Angeles from both airports.
  • "Dallas is a city on the move and on the rise, and you can add Delta's expansion at Dallas Love Field to our city's ever-expanding list of major economic wins in recent years," said Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson. "These new routes will provide our residents and workers with more options for travel while bringing more visitors to Dallas to experience all the great opportunities and amazing amenities that our city has to offer." 
  • The Metroplex is not the only part of Texas where Delta is expanding service. Austin, one of the fastest growing airports in the country, will also see a significant number of new offerings from the airline. By July 10, Delta plans to operate new routes to international hubes and as many as 40 domestic flights on peaks to major cities across the nation from Austin.

Frontier Airlines Launches GoWild! All-You-Can-Fly Summer Pass


  • ‘Endless summer’ just took on a whole new meaning with the new all-you-can-fly GoWild! Summer Pass™ from ultra-low fare carrier Frontier Airlines (NASDAQ: ULCC).  The GoWild! Summer Pass offers passholders exclusive access to unlimited flights between Frontier’s U.S. and international destinations from May 2 through Sept. 30, 2023 and is available for a limited time at a special introductory price of $399 per person.
  • The new GoWild! Summer Pass is being introduced just as Frontier announces a major expansion of service, including eight new routes to the popular Caribbean paradise of Puerto Rico.  With the GoWild! Pass™, domestic travel can be booked and confirmed the day before flight departure. International travel can be booked and confirmed starting 10 days before flight departure. Frontier serves destinations throughout the U.S., Mexico, Caribbean and Latin America.
  • “Everyone loves summer vacation and, with the new GoWild! Summer Pass, you can enjoy even more of what you love,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president of commercial, Frontier Airlines. “For people with flexible schedules, this is a terrific opportunity to have a truly epic summer and then some, soaking up rays on the beach, exploring national parks and visiting new cities.”


Amazon Flight Pullback Caps Sun Country Airlines’ Cargo Growth


  • Downtime for aircraft maintenance and Amazon’s more conservative approach to flight expansion amid reduced online shopping resulted in a marginal drop in cargo revenue last year for hybrid carrier Sun Country Airlines.
  • The Amazon transport provider said cargo revenue increased a modest 4.6% to $24.4 million during the fourth quarter but dipped 1.2% to $90.3 million for the full year on a 4% decrease in hours utilized.
  • Overall, Sun Country (NASDAQ: SNCY) reported fourth-quarter revenue of $272 million, a year-over-year increase of 31.6%, and adjusted pretax income of $10.3 million, a 39% gain, despite a large jump in costs for fuel and pilot pay related to a new contract. Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) now represents about 11% of total revenue.
  • The number of in-service hours during the fourth quarter declined 1.8% due to a shorter average trip length between airports versus the previous year.
  • “During the first half of the year, we had numerous Amazon aircraft in heavy maintenance, which drove the block hour decrease,” said CFO Dave Davis in an analysts’ briefing Friday. “Our cargo flying remains a consistent source of revenue in all environments, and we do not expect this to change in the future.”
