Atlantic Southeast Airlines (ASA) and Comair are increasing summer travel
options for customers by adding new nonstop jet flights between Delta’s
Atlanta and Cincinnati hubs and five popular regional destinations. By
July 7, Comair will add one additional daily round-trip jet flight between
Cincinnati and Akron/Canton, Ohio; Greensboro/High Point/Winston-Salem,

additional round-trip flight (operating Sundays through Thursdays) between
Atlanta and Chattanooga, Tenn.
All new service will be operated with Bombardier CRJ regional jets. See

“We are pleased to increase jet service in five key markets in time for
the busy summer travel season,” said Fred Buttrell, president and chief
executive officer—Delta Connection, Inc. “We are expecting record
travel this summer and look forward to giving our customers more flight
options from some of our most popular destinations aboard Delta Connection
flights to and from our hubs in Atlanta and Cincinnati.”

Customers traveling through Atlanta—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. Cincinnati customers may choose from more than 590 daily flights
to nearly 130 domestic and international destinations.

Known for its convenience, comfort and speed, the Bombardier CRJ carries
passengers in a two-by-two seating arrangement; every seat is an aisle or
