YAKIMA, Wash. - Delta Airlines has announced it will soon begin service to Yakima.
The announcement was made Monday morning by Yakima Airport officials along with city and county leaders.
Service will begin in June with two daily round-trip flights direct to Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City is a major hub for Delta.
A group of civic and business leaders had been trying to lure Delta to Yakima for more than two years.
Currently, Horizon Air is the only carrier servicing Yakima and all flights go through Seattle.
