Nashville International Airport officials have announced Delta Air Lines will begin daily nonstop service to Seattle via BNA in May.

Tickets go on sale Jan. 14 and service begins May 26, according to the release.

This will be the second airline operating from BNA and offering year-round service connecting Seattle and Nashville (Alaska Airlines is the other; read more here). Southwest Airlines connects BNA and Seattle with service in the summer only.

“We are thrilled our long-time partner, Delta Air Lines, is adding a daily nonstop flight to Seattle,” Rob Wigington, president and CEO of the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority, said in the release. “It wasn’t that long ago that we lacked service to this area, and now we will have three daily nonstop flights this summer, with two being year-round. We will continue to work to bring even more nonstop flights to fuel Nashville’s growth and economy.”

Nashville International Airport is served by 12 airlines and offers 440 daily flights. The airport provides nonstop air service to more than 50 destinations.
