The launch pads of America’s space coast
and 33 miles of unspoiled beaches soon will be only a short, non-stop flight
from the high energy of midtown Manhattan for customers, thanks to new service
from Delta Air Lines.Effective Jan. 31, 2005, Delta Connection carrier Comair will offer two
daily flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and
Melbourne, Fla.—the only non-stop service offered by any airline between
the two cities.
For Melbourne customers, this new service will provide more convenient
access to New York, the world’s financial center and a top business
destination. It also will provide convenient, one-stop access to international
destinations served by Delta from JFK, in addition to the service offered by
codeshare and SkyTeam alliance partners.
To launch this new service, Delta is offering introductory fares as low as
$74 each way, based on a roundtrip purchase. Additional taxes and fees apply.
See below for important restrictions.
“After Jan. 31, Melbourne customers no longer will have to make a stop in
order to travel to New York, and New Yorkers will have easier access to more
of Florida,” said Fred Buttrell, president and chief executive officer of
Delta Connection, Inc.
All flights will be operated with 50-seat Bombardier regional jet
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 400 regional jets throughout North America.
