Delta Adding Extra Flights for Super Bowl

Customers heading to the Super
Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., on Feb. 6, 2005, will have more Delta flights
to choose from as the airline adds an unprecedented number of additional
flights to the city for the event. Delta’s increased service to
Jacksonville, Fla., will be the largest amount of additional service Delta
has ever offered for a single event.

In addition to more than 20 daily flights already offered to Jacksonville
from Delta’s two largest hubs in Atlanta and Cincinnati, as well as New
York and Washington, D.C., the airline will add at least 47 extra flights
to the city during the key travel period of Feb. 3-8, 2005. These extra
flights will be from New York’s LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy
International Airport, and Atlanta.

“Offering customers more service to Jacksonville for Super Bowl weekend
demonstrates Delta’s flexibility and our commitment to fly where our
customers want to go, when they want to go there,” said Doug Blissit, vice
president of Network Planning. “As the leading air carrier to Florida,
we’re proud to help the city of Jacksonville and our Delta customers
during one of the premier sporting events in the world.”

Delta will also use larger aircraft on its existing flights, bringing the
total number of extra seats offered to more than 10,000. Depending on the
outcome of the National Football League season, Delta also plans to add
additional flights from the cities of the competing teams.

“It is exciting to be the host city for Super Bowl XXXIX,” said Danette
Bewley, director of Jacksonville International Airport. “Delta’s
commitment to add flights to Jacksonville International Airport to meet
passenger service demands for this major national event confirms their
commitment to the region as a business leader and community partner.”
