Delta Air Lines plans to increase capacity on its flights from both Atlanta and Los Angeles to Leon/Guanajuato, Mexico, less than a year after beginning service.

The Atlanta-based SkyTeam Alliance carrier plans to use 160-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft instead of 76-seat Bombardier CRJ900 aircraft on the Los Angeles-Leon route from 5 June and on the Atlanta-Leon route from 19 August, according to a regulatory filing. Both operate as codeshares with Aeromexico.

Delta began service to Leon/Guanajuato in December 2013.

The change is subject to approval by the US Department of Transportation (DOT).

Delta competes with United Airlines on the Los Angeles-Leon route, Innovata schedules show. It is the only operator on the Atlanta-Leon route.
