Delta adds new flights to connect Los Angeles to Atlanta.
Atlanta and Los Angeles will now have more flights than ever following a new flight schedule. According to reports, Delta announced a twice-daily service from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to Hollywood Burbank Airport starting on July 8, 2019.
The new service will make Delta the only airline to offer such a service to the Southeast from Burbank and the only airline to service Atlanta from the four largest airports in the LA area including Los Angeles International Airports, John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Ontario International Airport and Hollywood Burbank Airport.
“Passengers from around the world and country can now travel through Atlanta nonstop to Burbank, the media and entertainment capital of the world, and gateway to the Los Angeles basin,” said Hollywood Burbank Airport Executive Director Frank Miller. “Likewise, passengers can depart from Hollywood Burbank Airport and travel just about anywhere in the world through Atlanta. Traveling overseas just got easier and more convenient.”
“As our industry expands to the Southeast, it’s more important than ever for our members to have convenient, direct access to the locations where our content is created and produced,” said Gail Berman, President, Producers Guild of America. “Delta has long supported the specialized travel needs of the PGA and entertainment industry professionals, and Burbank-Atlanta service makes them an even stronger partner to our industry.”
Delta will be using their Boeing 737-700 aircraft with 12 seats in First Class, 18 seats in Delta Comfort+ and 94 in the Main Cabin. Similar to all flights from LA to Atlanta, the Burbank flights will offer seat-back entertainment screens with free entertainment at every seat, as well as free messaging, access to Wi-Fi, power outlets, and complimentary snacks and beverages.
The new Burbank flight route continues to show Delta’s commitment to connecting Los Angeles to the Southeast as critical industries, including Georgia’s booming entertainment and production industries.
