Delta Air Lines suspending Stewart-Atlanta flights from Sept 1
Passengers booking Delta Air Lines flights between Atlanta and Stewart International Airport has a bad news as they will not be able to book air tickets and travel between these two cities from September onwards.
Delta Air Lines recently announced it has decided to suspend its flights services between Stewart International Airport and Atlanta effective September 1, 2012.
The airline in a statement said that it is taking this move in view of slumping profits and low passenger traffic.
The airline, however, stated that it will continue its flights services between Stewart and Detroit. The airline has a large hub at Detroit with convenient connecting flights to above 140 destinations around the world.
Chairman of the Stewart Airport Commission James Wright said that the suspension of Frontier Airlines flights from Atlanta is a great blow for Stewart airport, which will now have only two airlines – US Airways and JetBlue Airways – serving it.
Wright said that the travelers wanting to use Stewart International Airport as their preferred airport will be facing a serious loss after the suspension of flights to Atlanta from here.
