Delta Continues Expansion at Atlantic City with New Nonstop Service to World’s Vacation Capital
Special introductory fares make it more affordable for Atlantic City customers to choose Orlando for holiday travel
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., Aug. 9, 2006 – Delta Air Lines will continue its expansion of domestic routes this Nov. 15 with the introduction of new daily nonstop flights between two of the East Coast’s vacation capitals: Atlantic City and Orlando. The new flights will complement existing daily nonstop service between Atlantic City and Delta’s two largest domestic hubs in Atlanta and Cincinnati and will make it easier for Delta customers to reach their favorite Florida attractions nonstop.
“Delta has long been known as Florida’s airline, serving more Florida cities than any other airline, and it is a pleasure to expand this convenience to our loyal customers in South Jersey,” said Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s vice president – Network Planning. “Atlantic City is an important market to Delta and we continue to enhance the level of service available to customers by increasing their access to our global network of nearly 300 destinations.”
At Orlando, customers also will have extensive connecting opportunities where the airline operates 104 peak-day flights to 47 destinations in the United States and the Bahamas and is the largest airline in terms of destinations served.
Delta’s new flights to Orlando will be operated by Delta Connection carrier Comair using 50-seat regional jets. These quiet, comfortable aircraft feature a seating configuration where every seat is a window or an aisle, with no middle seats.
