Delta Air Lines Expands Delta Connection Service at Buffalo and Rochester, N.Y.
Thursday March 13, 11:30 am ET


ATLANTA, March 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL - News) will expand its Delta Connection service featuring Bombardier CRJ regional jets between Atlanta and the New York airports of Buffalo and Rochester effective June 1.
At Buffalo, the new schedule will feature two new nonstop Delta Connection round-trip flights, which expands service between Buffalo and Atlanta to seven nonstop flights daily operated by Delta Connection carrier Comair.

At Rochester, the new schedule also will feature two new nonstop Delta Connection round-trip flights, which expands service to Atlanta to six nonstop flights daily, flown by Comair and Atlantic Southeast Airlines (ASA). The two new flights will be operated by Comair.

"Our customers, especially business travelers, tell us that frequency of service and access to our worldwide network via our hubs are very important to them," said Subodh Karnik, Delta's senior vice president - Network and Revenue Management. "These service enhancements increase the access to our largest hub from Buffalo and Rochester by 30 percent, and customers also will have continued access to our second largest hub in Cincinnati."

With the new schedule, all flights at Buffalo and Rochester will be Delta Connection flights, operated by Delta's wholly owned subsidiaries, ASA and Comair.

"Buffalo and Rochester are valued markets for Delta, and the decision to change our service there to all Delta Connection flights was not made easily," Karnik said. "These changes were designed to give our customers what they have asked for -- more nonstop and connecting options, and more flights throughout the day."

Delta Air Lines, the world's second largest airline in terms of passengers carried and the leading U.S. carrier across the Atlantic, offers 5,643 flights each day to 438 destinations in 78 countries on Delta, Delta Express, Delta Shuttle, Delta Connection and Delta's worldwide partners. Delta is a founding member of SkyTeam, a global airline alliance that provides customers with extensive worldwide destinations, flights and services. For more information, please go to delta.com .

Yep, next time I'll just sit back and wait for others to post. There are some good people on this board who really care about WNY air service.
