Delta Air Lines launches Detroit service from Silicon Valley
Delta Air Lines today began flying nonstop between Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) and Mineta San José International Airport (SJC). With this new service, Delta is the only SJC carrier offering service to Detroit and now offers nonstop flights to all the carrier’s U.S. hub airports.
“Detroit is a desirable city that has undergone an economic revitalization over the past decade while still being a major tourism destination for its historical contributions to both the U.S. automobile industry and music,” said SJC’s Director of Aviation John Aitken. “It’s apparent from the strong passenger bookings on the inaugural departing flight that Silicon Valley travelers are enthusiastic about this new service, whether Detroit is the final destination or a convenient connection to dozens of cities in Delta’s network, both in the Northeast and internationally.”
Delta’s SJC-DTW service operates using Boeing 737-900 aircraft equipped with seat-back screens with free in-flight entertainment, power ports and in-flight 2Ku high-speed Wi-Fi access at every seat. The seating configuration is 20 in First Class, 21 in Comfort + and 139 in the main cabin.
“Delta continues to invest in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area, including growing the number of seats we offer at Mineta San José International Airport by more than 130 percent since 2013 and adding several new destinations,” said Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice PresidentNetwork Planning. “Our newest destination connects the largest unserved markets from both Detroit and San Jose and means that San Jose customers now have direct service to all of
Delta’s U.S. hubs and more than 275 destinations beyond.”
The new SJC-DTW Delta flight operates as follows:
City Pair Departs Arrives

Delta is SJC’s third-largest carrier, offering 27 peak-daily nonstops in November 2018 to eight cities: Atlanta, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York/JFK, Salt Lake City and Seattle. The carrier operates flights from SJC’s Terminal A.
