Delta Connection will offer customers jet service between Washington’s Reagan National Airport and Boston beginning Sept. 3, 2002. Delta Connection carrier Comair will operate seven daily, nonstop round-trip flights between Washington and Boston’s Logan International Airport using Bombardier CRJ regional jets.
The new nonstop Boston - Washington, D.C., flights complement extensive service offered to customers by Delta (NYSE:DAL), Delta Express, Delta Shuttle and Delta Connection at Boston and Washington, D.C.
