Delta launches route to the Bahamas from New York City and connects SLC with Charlotte
Delta Air Lines launched two new routes on 2 March; one international and one domestic. From New York LaGuardia, NY (LGA), the SkyTeam airline now flies daily to Nassau (NAS) in the Bahamas with MD88 aircraft. This means that the Bahaman airport now is served from all the three main New York City airports, as JetBlue operates 19 times weekly from JFK and United 10 times a week from Newark. Delta also launched daily flights from Salt Lake City, UT (SLC) to Charlotte, NC (CLT) on the same date. The flights, which are operated with A320s, notably face competition from US Airways’ also daily A320 flights that launched only two days later.
