DIRECT FLIGHT TO SALT LAKE CITY IS BACK - James Cove, PlanetSKI Editor
Thursday July 4, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

Details are sketchy but we have heard on good authority it starts again next winter giving direct UK access to the ski resorts in Utah.





The Delta flight will begin as a daily service from London Heathrow for the first three weeks in January.

It then moves to 5 days a week before returning to a daily service in March.

"They are still working out the actual dates/days and when the schedule changes to 5 days and will send an update as soon as they know," said a source to PlanetSKI ahead of details being released.

We understand they will be released shortly.

A direct service was introduced back in winter 2017, but it was axed in June of that year.

The new flight gives easier access to some of the best resorts in the USA that are within an hour of Salt Lake City.

These include Alta, Snowbird, Park City and Deer Valley.

Then there are the smaller cult resorts like Powder Mountain and Sundance.

The merger of Canyons and Park City created an area of comparable in size to some European ski areas.

"It's great to see the return of the direct flight as changing planes in one of the US hub airports after a trans-Atlantic flight is not ideal," said the PlanetSKI editor, James Cove.

"However it will have to be commercially succesful to survive and it will be interesting to see it can succeed where the earlier service failed."

PlanetSKI took the direct flight back in 2017 as we embarked on a road trip round the Utah resorts:
