Delta Air Lines Inc. is adding nine new routes and stepping up nonstop flights to popular mountain, beach and leisure destinations in a bid to lure more travelers away from home as the pandemic wanes.

Delta outlined the additions in a statement Friday, days after the Atlanta-based carrier and rivals said improved summer demand is showing signs that a recovery has begun, a year after the spread of Covid-19 nearly wiped out air travel.
