Delta Air Lines is going after more of Seattle-based Alaska Airlines’ turf, adding  flights from Sea-Tac Airport to  Vancouver, B.C., and Fairbanks.

Delta’s daily non-stop service between Seattle and  Fairbanks begins May 29 next year;  five daily flights to Vancouver, B.C.,  begin June 5 (on Delta’s affiliate SkyWest Airlines).

In recent months, Delta has been aggressively increasing flights from Seattle to Europe and Asia, as well as in North America.

Delta recently announced expanded  service from Sea-Tac Airport to Anchorage, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Portland, San Diego and San Francisco. Internationally, the carrier  already offers nonstops from Seattle to Amsterdam, Beijing, Paris, Shanghai-Pudong and Tokyo, and it will add London-Heathrow in March, plus Hong Kong and Seoul in June (contingent upon government approval).
