COVINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 1, 2017) — Delta Air Lines is expanding service from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport to 13 of its 35 destinations. More than 75 percent of all flights will operate with aircraft providing a first class cabin, the largest amount offered in Cincinnati.
Upgrades will take place in nine major markets:
- Expanded service in five cities with additional daily flights to Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Orlando and Toronto
- Aircraft upgrades in two markets: Denver to mainline and all Minneapolis flights offering first class
- Seasonal extensions in two markets: Fort Myers now operating daily throughout the summer and Seattle extending into the fall and spring
Delta also is making scheduling changes to Charlotte, Hartford, Newark and Philadelphia to allow for day trips for business and leisure travelers with morning departures and evening returns. Flights will also be more evenly distributed for improved coverage throughout the day.
Delta will operate 82 peak-day departures to 35 total destinations this summer including Delta’s popular nonstop service to Paris-Charles de Gaulle in conjunction with joint venture partner Air France KLM. Cancun and Toronto service round out Delta’s international offerings.
“CVG is pleased to see Delta’s capacity growth and schedule enhancements,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. “Delta’s local CVG passenger volume has grown for 15 consecutive months and these changes will certainly help continue that trend while benefiting business and leisure customers in our region.”
