Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Delta Airlines has announced expansion plans out of Salt Lake that will have an impact on the Magic Valley.
The airline will be increasing its presence to include more flights and additional destinations.
Delta is also updating its planes to all operate on a two-class system by 2017.
According to Magic Valley Regional Airport Manager Bill Carberry, the changes are going to be felt locally.
"For years we've seen really a contraction in the airline business but the next zero to five years Delta is planning to bolster their capacity in Salt Lake. So we will see some larger jets servicing into Salt Lake as well as some new cities so it's great for the Magic Valley," he explains.
Carberry says new technologies are adding amenities like WIFI on the planes and early check-ins.
The changes will take place gradually over the next five years.
