Yakima, WA -  Delta Airlines begins service to Yakima.

The first plane arrived at about ten minutes after twelve.

The 45 passengers aboard flight 3834 received a heroes welcome at Yakima Air Terminal.

A businessman from Salt Lake City says this new service will make it more convenient for his company to do business in the Yakima Valley.

"Well, I came today as a opposed to yesterday so I could get a direct flight.  Now I can do what I need and get out of town tomorrow."

Yakima has a second airline carrier for the first time since United left after 911.
