Delta Air Lines debuts second route from Marquette
Delta Air Lines this week commenced flights between Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) in Minnesota and Marquette (MQT) in Michigan. Scheduled to begin on 1 March, the first service actually took place on 2 March, with the first flight cancelled due to the poor weather conditions at the latter airport (confirmed by Flightradar24.com data). Delta will offer a daily service on the 481-kilometre sector on its 50-seat CRJ 200s. Facing no direct competition, this becomes Delta’s second connection to Marquette, with it already welcoming 13 weekly flights from Detroit, also flown on the same aircraft type. With this launch, Delta now offers 1,000 weekly one-way seats from Marquette, with the airport’s only other serving carrier being American Airlines which offers 441 weekly seats to Chicago O’Hare.
