Delta Air Lines will begin twice-daily nonstop service from Los Angeles to San Antonio, Texas, beginning April 7, the carrier announced Tuesday.

The San Antonio service complements Delta’s daily service from Los Angeles to Dallas, which launches Nov. 3, and the addition of a third daily flight between Los Angeles and Austin, beginning Nov. 2.

All flights are operated by Delta Connection carrier Compass Airlines.

With the addition of San Antonio and Dallas service, Delta customers will have access to nine daily departures to three destinations between Los Angeles and Texas: four daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, three daily flights to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and two daily flights to San Antonio International Airport.

In the last year, Delta has expanded its network from LAX by adding service to Austin; Boise, Idaho; and San Salvador, El Salvador; increasing the number of flights from destinations it already serves; and expanding to year- round service in Boston. Delta will launch service from LAX to Monterrey, Mexico, in November.

Last fall, Delta expanded its service from Los Angeles to San Francisco with the launch of its hourly, nonstop Delta Shuttle. In October, Delta will launch international service from LAX to London-Heathrow as part of its joint venture partnership with Virgin Atlantic Airways.

Service to Austin, Boise, Monterrey and San Francisco is operated by Delta Connection carriers Compass Airlines and SkyWest Airlines.

A $229 million, multi-phase project to expand and enhance Delta’s Terminal 5 is underway, with the west lobby to be completed in November.
