Delta Air Lines resumes its service between Chattanooga and Atlanta after 17 years
Leading U.S. carrier Delta Air Lines recently announced it has resumed its flights services to Atlanta from Chattanooga after an interval of 17 years.
The airline operated its flights into Chattanooga for nearly 50 years. The airline, however, decided to stop its service between Chattanooga and Atlanta in December 1995.
Trebor Banstetter, Delta Air Lines’ spokesman, said that the airline is planning to continue to offer its customers Delta Air Lines flights tickets for its service to be operated until next year between the two destinations. He also said that the airline is still considering whether to operate after 2013 or not.
Banstetter said that Delta Air Lines will be operating one 125-seat DC-9-50 aircraft every day between Chattanooga and Atlanta. The other daily flights on its affiliates will however be operated by smaller aircraft.
The airline will be offering nine flights between Atlanta and Chattanooga on a daily basis. Apart from this, the airline would also conduct flight operations between Detroit and Chattanooga every day.
