Delta to launch flights from Atlanta to Ontario, Calif.


Delta Air Lines announced plans Friday to launch flights between Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and Ontario, Calif., adding another way to get from Atlanta to Southern California.

Atlanta-based Delta plans to operate one daily flight on the route starting April 22, 2019 and a second daily flight starting June 9. The route will be flown with 180-seat Boeing 737-900ERs.

Delta operates a hub at Los Angeles International Airport, which is nearly 60 miles away from the smaller Ontario airport in the Inland Empire region. And Delta also operates flights from Atlanta to John Wayne Airport in Orange County south of Los Angeles.

From Ontario, Delta already operates flights to its Salt Lake City hub.

But the new service will add another connection between the L.A. Basin and Atlanta.
