RELEASE – Delta Air Lines Upgrading Nonstop Atlanta Service from Seasonal to Year-Round
RENO, Nev. – Delta Air Lines will upgrade its existing seasonal nonstop service to year-round between Reno-Tahoe International Airport and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest airport, in June 2020.
The year-round Atlanta service will begin as a four times a week service on February 14 on Delta’s 199-seat Boeing 757 aircraft featuring 20 First Class, 20 Delta Comfort+ and 150 Main Cabin seats. The daily flight begins on June 4 for the summer season.
Connecting Reno-Tahoe to the busiest airport in the world is a major air service accomplishment. It will provide outstanding international connections to Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America. With approximately 120 destinations available for passengers to connect to, the new flights to Atlanta are a major enhancement for both business and leisure.
“This flight is a victory for our entire region,” Marily Mora, President/CEO of Reno-Tahoe International Airport, said. “Customers have filled the seats when Atlanta was just seasonal, and our Regional Air Service Corporation has worked with our air service team to make it daily. We are proud of our strong community partnerships and our relationship with Delta Air Lines.”
The new daily flight is scheduled to depart Reno at 1:08 p.m. and arrives at 8:30 p.m. Service from Atlanta departs at 9:55 a.m. with arrival in Reno at 12:07 p.m.
“The best way to thank Delta for this new service is to fill the seats on these new daily flights,” Mora said. “It is important we support long haul flights like Delta to Atlanta if we want to continue to grow air service.”
The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority receives no state or local funding. All operating revenues are derived from tenant and concession fees. The Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is the 66th busiest commercial airport in the United States, with almost 4.5 million passengers per year. For more details, visit www.renoairport.com.
