ATLANTA, Aug. 31, 2006 – Delta Air Lines customers booked on flights traveling to or from select cities in North and South Carolina may make adjustments to their travel schedule due to the impact of Tropical Storm Ernesto.

Impacted cities include the following (note: cities may change):
- Florence, S.C.
- Myrtle Beach, S.C.
- Charleston, S.C.
- Fayetteville, N.C.
- Wilmington, N.C.

Customers who have purchased tickets by Aug. 31, 2006, and are scheduled to travel Aug. 31 through Sept. 1, 2006, to, from or through the affected cities on Delta, Delta Connection®, or Delta-coded flights, may make a one-time change without penalty or additional fees if tickets are changed and new travel originates on or before Sept. 2, 2006.
