Coco Warner ReportingHow does a trip to California or Mexico sound for Spring Break this year? As of this week, Delta Airlines is offering non-stop flights to Long Beach and Mazatlan from Salt Lake City.

Those two flights put Delta at the 100 mark for destinations out of Salt Lake City; and come June, you can add another seven non-stop flights to that list.

Those flights include: Bellingham, Washington, Des Moines, Iowa, Fargo, North Dakota, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Toronto, Ontario and Victora, British Columbia. The inaugural flights to Long Beach, California took off today. Flights to Mazatlan, Mexico start on Wednesday.

Despite the recent challenges Delta has faced with its restructuring plan, airline officials say the Salt Lake City hub is a bright spot, which is good news for Utah air travelers.

Bob Cortelyou, Delta Airlines: "In fact, just since October, Delta's added or announced service to 21 new destinations out of Salt Lake City."

Dick Jensen, Morris Murdock Travel: "We're really excited about the Mazatlan flight. We knew it was coming, we've known for sometime, and so we've gone to the hotels in Mazatlan -- the most popular ones-- what we have, we've negotiated some packages where kids 17 and under can stay free."

And agents at Morris Murdock travel say Mazatlan would make a great Spring Break trip. Also on the list is Disneyland. California is the most popular destination for Utahns during Spring Break. Nationwide, it's Orlando, Florida.
