Delta To Beef Up JFK With Turbo Props?

Sun Mar 12, 2006 1:09 am

My mom, a Horizon F/A, pointed something interesting out to me on the company e mail this morning.

"Delta plans major expansion at JFK

Delta Air Lines said this week it will significantly expand short-haul flights at New York's JFK Airport, essentially building it into a small hub, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. With mainline service or regional Delta Connection service, the carrier plans 46 new flights from JFK this summer, bringing its peak-day totals to 139.

The move will add 15 markets, all within 425 miles of JFK, Delta officials said. Five of those markets will get 50-seat regional jets, and 10 will get turboprop aircraft."


Any info is greatly appriciated, Im just wondering where these "props" will be coming from, ATL based AT7s?

There is a big thread on this already in Civil Aviation...
