Under the Boardwalk – Delta Adds Non-Stop Service between Atlantic City and Atlanta Just in Time for Summer Getaways
Introductory fares as low as $99 one-way invite customers to try new route.
ATLANTA – Feb 16, 2006 – Strolling the boardwalks of Atlantic City, N.J. this summer will be easier for Delta Air Lines’ customers around the globe thanks to the addition of new non-stop service between Delta’s largest hub in Atlanta and the Atlantic City International Airport. Effective June 8, Delta Connection carrier Atlantic Southeast Airlines will offer customers one daily round-trip flight between the two cities featuring the quiet and comfortable Bombardier CRJ200 jet aircraft.
“In 2006 Delta is continuing to aggressively transform our network to expand into new or underserved routes where our customers want to visit or do business,” said Bob Cortelyou, Delta’s vice president of Network Planning. “The reach and convenience of our Atlanta hub will make it easier for customers from most any point on the globe to enjoy the charm, fine dining and world-class entertainment that the Jersey shore has to offer this summer.”
The new flights will connect customers from nearly 200 worldwide destinations via Atlanta to and from Atlantic City and supplement existing year-round service offered from Delta’s Cincinnati hub. Atlantic City officials estimate that the city hosts more than 33 million visitors annually who come to experience everything from casinos to trade shows to sporting events.
“The future just got brighter for Atlantic City International Airport and the travelers it serves,” said South Jersey Transportation Authority Chairman Frank Spencer. “This new service, connecting Atlantic City to the world’s largest airport, offers greater accessibility for travelers to our exciting regional destinations and excellent connectivity for our outbound market.”
To celebrate this new service, Delta is offering customers special introductory fares for travel between Atlantic City and a number of U.S. destinations. Tickets must be purchased by March 8, 2006. Sale fares are valid for travel between June 8 and August 1, 2006.
