TAMPA — Delta Air Lines announced Tuesday it will launch daily nonstop service between Tampa International Airport and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport beginning March 11, 2020.

The Seattle-Tampa service will use Boeing 737-800 aircraft in an effort to expand Delta’s service from Seattle to sun and ski destinations. In a statement, Tampa International Airport chief executive officer Joe Lopano welcomed “our friends from Seattle. Likewise, we expect it to be a popular route among our Tampa Bay residents looking to visit the Emerald City for vacation or business.”

Delta will be Tampa International’s second airline to offer nonstop service to the Pacific Northwest. Alaska Airlines has flown daily nonstop between Tampa and Seattle since 2014.

Delta flights from Seattle will leave at 7:40 a.m. and arrive in Tampa at 4 p.m. — “in time for a sunset dinner,” Delta vice president-Seattle Tony Gonchar said. Flights to Seattle will leave Tampa at 4:45 p.m. and arrive in Seattle at 8:15 p.m.
