Yakima, WA - Delta Airlines is set to take flight out of Yakima for the first time Thursday. The first Delta flight landed in Yakima at 11:30 on Thursday, coming in from Salt Lake City.
About a half hour later, the the official ribbon cutting ceremony officially opened up the Delta desk for business in the lobby.
Right now the plan is for Delta to provide two round trip flights daily to Salt Lake City. This saves eastbound travelers a lot of trouble. Instead of flying west to Seattle for connecting flights, they can now start out their trip by heading east. From Salt Lake City, Delta offers connecting flights to 118 cities.
