ATLANTA, Feb. 13, 2007 – Delta Air Lines invites customers to expand their summer horizons with nonstop service to five new destinations and returning seasonal service to four cities from the airline’s flagship hub in Atlanta.

Beginning in May, Delta will expand its summer schedule to include new nonstop service between Atlanta and:

  • Fort Smith, Ark. (effective June 7)

“ As part of the ongoing globalization of Delta, we have continued to expand in Atlanta to offer customers more choice and convenience,” said Bob Cortelyou, vice president – Network Planning. “This summer promises to be our most exciting ever at Delta with dozens of new international and domestic choices for customers flying to, from or through the growing Atlanta hub.”
