ATLANTA, Nov. 25, 2002—Delta Connection will offer customers seasonal daily nonstop jet service between Delta’s (NYSE: DAL) Cincinnati hub and the Florida cities of Melbourne, Fort Walton Beach and Panama City effective Jan. 21, 2003 through April 4, 2003. Delta Connection carrier Comair will operate one round-trip flight to each of those cities using the Canadair CRJ regional jet. Comair also will operate an additional daily round-trip flight between Cincinnati and Tallahassee, Fla., from Jan. 21 through April 4.
Delta Connection customers already enjoy the convenience of one daily round-trip flight between Cincinnati and Tallahassee. Customers who currently have nonstop weekend service between Cincinnati and Melbourne, Fort Walton Beach and Panama City will have the convenience of daily seasonal flights during the busy winter travel season.
“These flights allow Delta Connection to meet higher customer demand for service to Florida during the winter,” said Fred Buttrell, president and chief executive officer of Delta Connection, Inc. “Travelers to and from Florida will enjoy the ease of connecting through Delta’s Cincinnati hub.”
Customers at 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, including Orlando and other cities throughout Florida.
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 delta.com.
