ATLANTA, Feb. 23, 2006 – Beginning this summer, Delta Air Lines’ customers will be able to take advantage of new non-stop service between Delta’s largest hub in Atlanta and Calgary, Alberta, Canada and Bozeman, Montana.

“Delta is responding to strong passenger demand for convenient service to one of Canada’s largest business and leisure markets. In addition, we are building on the success of our winter service to Bozeman by offering twice-weekly summer service to one of the fastest growing leisure destinations in the country,” said Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s vice president of Network Planning. “These two new destinations will benefit from the extensive connecting opportunities offered by Delta’s Atlanta hub, including convenient connections to Latin America and Europe.”
