Flights to Salt Lake City will soon be available out of Santa Barbara.

The Santa Barbara Airport announced Monday that Delta will begin offering three daily flights to Utah’s capital beginning Aug. 12.

“With a growing population of nearly half a million people throughout Santa Barbara County, Santa Barbara Airport is one of the largest unserved West Coast markets in Delta’s network,” said Scott Santoro, Delta’s Vice President – Los Angeles and Sales-West in a press release. “This is a great opportunity as Delta continues expanding in the West and complements Delta’s investment in the LA Basin.”

The new service will be available through Delta Connection carrier SkyWest. The 76-seat Embraer E-175 will offer 12 first-class seats, 20 “Delta Comfort” seats and 44 seats in the main cabin.

The flights are a little more than an hour and are available now for booking.
