There's a new way to get to Southern California. Delta begins nonstop service between Atlanta and Ontario, California (not Canada) next spring. Nonstop fares start at $287 roundtrip and peak summer travel is available!

Delta adds New Nonstop Service Between Atlanta and Southern California

The new nonstop flight between Atlanta (ATL) and Ontario (ONT) begins April 22, 2019. Flights will operate once daily through mid-June and then increase to twice daily in late June.

There is more to Southern California than LA and this new flight will get you to the desert and mountains quicker than flying into the overcrowded LAX airport where it can sometimes take close to an hour just to get out of the airport traffic. Angeles National Forest is a short drive away from Ontario where you can hike Mt. Baldy and the Devil's Backbone Trail.

Plus, the $287 roundtrip intro fare is available for peak summer travel. As an example, I found seats departing Atlanta ATL on Friday, July 12, returning from Ontario ONT on Monday, July 15. This same travel period is over $100 more to fly into Los Angeles (LAX).

For booking info, see our fare details. This fare also works in the reverse direction if you want to fly from Ontario to Atlanta.

This price is a Basic Economy fare, but Delta is the least restrictive when it comes to Basic Economy. You'll still be allowed a normal amount of carry-on luggage plus a personal item. If you want to avoid Basic Economy, the Main Cabin Economy fare is $60 more roundtrip. For more info, check out our guide to Basic Economy for domestic travel.
