Daily round-trip flights to Savannah, Nashville begin April 3; special low fares celebrate Boston’s newest routes

BOSTON, Jan. 26, 2006 – Delta Air Lines will continue expanding customers’ choices for non-stop flights between their hometowns and key U.S. business and leisure destinations with the addition of non-stop service between Boston and Savannah, Ga., and between Boston and Nashville, Tenn. Beginning April 3, Delta Connection carrier Comair will offer customers the convenience of one daily roundtrip flight in each market.

“Boston remains an important focus city for Delta as we move ahead with our ambitious transformation plan this year,” said Bob Cortelyou, vice president-Network Planning. “We are pleased to further expand options for non-stop travel between the growing Southeast and one of our largest and most loyal customer bases in Boston.”

With its April 2006 schedule, Delta will offer 89 flights between Boston and 27 destinations in the United States, Canada and Bermuda. Delta offers Boston and connecting passengers non-stop access to seven Florida cities--Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Orlando, Sarasota, Tampa and West Palm Beach--in addition to an extensive schedule of flights to Delta’s hubs in Atlanta, Cincinnati and Salt Lake City and transcontinental flights to the West Coast.

Kennedy International Airport and Orlando, Fla. At Savannah, Delta provides 12 non-stop daily flights to Atlanta, Cincinnati and New York-LaGuardia Airport. Additionally, Delta has applied to the U.S. Department of Transportation for approval to fly between Savannah and Washington, D.C.’s Reagan National Airport.

To celebrate its service between Boston and these two new non-stop destinations, for a limited time Delta is offering customers a special low introductory airfare of $99 each way for travel between Boston and Nashville and $79 each way for travel between Boston and Savannah.
