ATLANTA, June 9, 2014 - Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) announces the launch of its new daily nonstop service from Los Angeles International Airport to General Mariano Escobedo International Airport in Monterrey, starting on Nov. 2, 2014. Delta’s new route highlights its growth in Mexico by offering more options to connect main business Mexican cities with its international hubs in the United States.

“Monterrey is Mexico’s industrial capital, fueling economic progress and high competitiveness.  Its privileged geographic location has positioned Monterrey as an international business destination and Delta is supporting this growth with the addition of new and convenient connections to the U.S. and the world through its international hubs,” said Carlos E. Hernandez, Delta´s Director for Mexico. “This new route Los Angeles-Monterrey is part of Delta’s commitment to support the growing demand of business travelers who want access to the main industrial city in Mexico.”

The new service will be operated using a Compass E-175 aircraft with 76 seats, including 12 seats in Business class, 12 Economy Comfort seats and 52 seats in Economy. Delta´s new route Los Angeles-Monterrey will offer a major connection from Mexico’s northern border region to the most important destinations in Asia-Pacific, including Sydney, Australia; and Haneda and Narita airports in Tokyo, Japan; through Delta´s international gateway in Los Angeles.

Delta has made significant enhancements to its Los Angeles service both on the ground and in the air in the last few years.
