A Delta Connection flight lands at Eppley Airfield. 

Delta Air Lines will start offering a daily nonstop flight from Omaha’s Eppley Airfield to Los Angeles International Airport this November.

The daily flights from Omaha start Nov. 11. They will depart from Omaha at 7 a.m. and arrive at LAX at 8:45 a.m. Pacific time.

The flight from Los Angeles leaves at 5:40 p.m. Pacific time, arriving in Omaha at 10:55 p.m. Central.

A first-day basic economy flight with a return on Nov. 12 is listed at $296.60.

Delta will fly a 76-seat E-175 plane, which seats 12 in first class, 20 in “Delta Comfort+” and 44 in the main seating.

Delta said it has increased flights out of Omaha by more than 10% in the last year. By November, according to the airline, it will offer 22 flights — seven nonstop — from Omaha on its peak day.

Steve McCoy, the Omaha Airport Authority’s director of air service and business development, said the Los Angeles area is a popular destination for both business and leisure flyers.

The airport authority has worked to increase Eppley’s West Coast flights in line with local passengers’ interest. In 2013, the airport had no nonstop flights to the West Coast.

Overall, the number of nonstop flights out of Eppley has doubled to 34 since then, and now there are nonstop flights to Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego.
