Delta Connection Adds Services

Delta Connection will increase travel options for customers by adding jet service between Delta Air Lines’ (NYSE:DAL) hub in Cincinnati and six cities. The cities receiving expanded Delta Connection regional jet service in December 2002 and January 2003 include Green Bay and Madison, Wis.; Memphis, Tenn.; Charleston, S.C.; Tampa, Fla.; and Chicago’s Midway Airport. Delta Connection carrier Comair will operate the additional flights with the Bombardier CRJ regional jet.

Beginning Dec. 1, Delta Connection will add a new round-trip flight between Cincinnati and Tampa, Fla. Effective Jan. 3, Delta Connection will add one round-trip flight each to the cities of Charleston, Memphis and Chicago Midway. On Jan. 13, Madison will receive one additional round-trip flight, and Green Bay will have an additional flight beginning Jan. 29.

Delta currently operates five flights a day between Cincinnati and Tampa. With the new schedules, Delta Connection will have four round-trip flights a day between Cincinnati and Green Bay, four to Madison, seven to Memphis, four to Charleston and five to Chicago Midway.

Customers traveling through Delta’s hub at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport have a convenient choice of more than 520 flights a day to 116 domestic and international cities.

Known for its convenience, comfort and speed, the CRJ carries passengers in a two-by-two seating arrangement; every seat is an aisle or window, with no middle seats. The plane can cruise at a speed of 530 mph at altitudes as high as 41,000 feet and is recognized as the quietest commercial jet aircraft in the world.


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 270 regional jets throughout North America. For more information, please contact Delta Reservations, 1-800-221-1212, or visit
