Delta Connection carrier Atlantic Southeast Airlines (ASA) will offer
customers an additional daily nonstop flight between Dothan, Ala., and
Atlanta beginning April 4, 2004. The new flight, to be operated using the
66-passenger ATR-72 aircraft, offers Dothan customers another option for
evening travel to and from Delta’s largest hub in Atlanta.
With the added service, Delta Connection will offer Dothan passengers six
daily nonstop, round-trip flights between Dothan and Atlanta, all aboard
ATR-72 and Bombardier CRJ200 aircraft.
“Delta Connection has expanded service between Dothan and Atlanta based on
customer requests to offer more departures to meet the demands of their
busy schedules,” said Fred Buttrell, president and chief executive
officer, Delta Connection, Inc. “This additional service increases Dothan
customers’ access to evening flights at the Atlanta hub, making it easier
to do business in one day.”
Passengers traveling through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International
Airport—the largest single-airline hub in the world—have access to
more than 940 flights to 182 destinations worldwide operated by Delta,
Delta Connection, Song and Delta’s worldwide partners.
Delta Connection carriers include Delta’s wholly owned subsidiaries
Atlantic Southeast Airlines and Comair, additional regional carriers
Atlantic Coast Airlines, Chautauqua Airlines and SkyWest Airlines, and
codeshare partner American Eagle (in California). Delta Connection
carriers operate more than 380 regional jets throughout North America.
