Despite cutting a large number of its domestic routes in favor of developing new international services, Delta has today announced the addition of two new domestic flights.
Starting on December 1, Delta’s subsidiary airline Comair will offer two flights a day between Orlando, Florida and Washington, D.C. Two weeks later it will add a daily flight between Orlando and Akron-Canton Regional Airport in Ohio.
Both new routes will be promoted with a discounted airfare. One-way airfares between Akron and Orlando will be $74, and $69 for the Orlando-Washington route. To obtain these fares, tickets must be purchased before November 8.
Delta’s vice president for network planning, Bob Cortelyou, said: “Our new routes between Orlando and the nation’s capital and Akron-Canton underscore Delta’s transformation plan to focus on offering our customers more service to the destinations they value for business and leisure travel.”
Delta has 115 flights serving Orlando every day that go to 38 destinations in the U.S. and the Bahamas.
