Delta will add 9 flights and 1,272 additional seats for football fans headed to Houston from Detroit and Seattle.

Delta is ramping up its flights to Houston as the top two college football teams hit NRG Stadium on Jan. 8 for the title game.

Following a Michigan victory, Delta is launching a route from Detroit (DTW) to Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport (HOU). Additionally, Delta’s existing route to Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) will provide Wolverines fans with even more convenient travel options.

But that’s not all—if you’re looking forward to catching the game but find yourself in-flight, Delta makes sure you never miss a touchdown. With much of the airline’s fleet equipped with live satellite TV, customers can enjoy the games from the comfort of their seat while flying over the Continental U.S.

Plus, as Delta continues doubling down on in-flight connectivity, joining SkyMiles also ensures customers can quickly connect to fast, free Delta Sync Wi-Fi, available today on more than 620 domestic mainline aircraft, to access their own subscription services and seamlessly stream the game.
