Delta Air Lines is expanding travel options for Cincinnati customers, with more seats, improved schedules and upgraded aircraft.
“These enhancements reflect the solid demand from both business and leisure travellers,” said Joe Esposito, vice president – network, Americas.
“We are proud to serve our Cincinnati customers as the No. 1 airline connecting Cincinnati to the world.”
The carrier confirmed that additional daily flights are being added from Cincinnati to Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Orlando, and Toronto, increasing the airline’s total flights out of its mid-western hub by six per cent.
Service was added to 13 of Delta’s 35 non-stop destinations from Cincinnati, according to the carrier.
More than 75 per cent of all flights will operate with aircraft providing a First Class cabin.
Additionally, Delta is improving schedules in four markets: Charlotte, Hartford, Newark and Philadelphia.
Schedules in these markets will be re-timed to allow for convenient day trips for business and leisure travellers with morning departures and evening returns.
Flights will also be more evenly distributed for improved coverage throughout the day.
“CVG is pleased to see Delta’s capacity growth and schedule enhancements,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
“Delta’s local CVG passenger volume has grown for 15 consecutive months and these changes will certainly help continue that trend while benefiting business and leisure customers in our region.”
Delta will operate 82 peak-day departures to 35 total destinations this summer including Delta’s popular nonstop service to Paris-Charles de Gaulle in conjunction with joint venture partner Air France KLM.
