Delta Will Offer Nonstop Flights from London to Utah
SALT LAKE CITY — Delta Air Lines will offer nonstop flights from London to Salt Lake City during the next ski season.
KSL-TV reports the only North American ski destinations previously served by direct flights from the United Kingdom were British Columbia and Denver. To get to Salt Lake City, British visitors would have to connect through a hub like Chicago or Dallas.
Delta held its first nonstop flight from London's Heathrow Airport and Salt Lake International Airport in August. The summer trial went so well that Delta says it will offer the route three times a week in the winter.
Paul Marshall with Ski Utah says he is "beyond excited" about the new flights. He says international visitors stay in Utah longer and spend money at more establishments.
