Delta Air Lines is launching new seasonal service from Los Angeles to Managua, Nicaragua.

The weekly service will launch June 5. Delta already offers daily nonstop service from Atlanta to Managua.

It will include a Los Angeles-Managua flight on Fridays and a Managua-Los Angeles flight on Saturdays.

The new service will operate on a 160-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

“Delta is the only airline offering the convenience of weekly nonstop service between Managua and Los Angeles,” said Jose Antonio Torres, Delta’s general manager for Central America. “The new Los Angeles-Managua weekly flight is timed for a late departure to provide business travelers a full work day prior to traveling. In addition, customers from Nicaragua will now have increased access to Delta’s global network and will be able to enjoy the benefits of Delta’s investments in the Central American region.”

Delta has been on an expansion push in Latin America, particularly out of Los Angeles, from which it now offers service to 13 cities.

“Delta has been growing its footprint between Los Angeles and Central America,” said Ranjan Goswami, Delta’s vice president for Los Angeles. “With direct access to all of the key US entertainment and tech markets, as well as additional Latin service through our gateway at LAX, we strive to provide business and leisure customers the best service options to meet their travel needs.”
