Delta Adds Daily Flights Between Lincoln, Atlanta


LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Delta Air Lines will begin offering a new direct flight from Lincoln to Atlanta on Wednesday.

The Lincoln Airport Authority's David Harring says he expects the flights to the major hub of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to be popular.

Flights to Atlanta will leave each day at 7 a.m. The return flight will leave Atlanta at 7:15 p.m. Eastern and arrive in Lincoln at 8:40 p.m. Central.

The airport received a $750,000 federal grant to provide a revenue guarantee to Delta on the Atlanta flights, but if the flights are profitable the grant funds will be returned.
