Delta Air Lines celebrates a trio of route inaugurations

Savannah Airport celebrated the start of Delta Air Lines’ weekly services to Minneapolis-St. Paul by giving passengers on the inaugural flight cupcakes which were decorated in the corporate colours of the SkyTeam member. The 1,756-kilometre sector will be flown by the carrier’s fleet of CRJ 900s and will face no direct competition according to OAG Schedules Analyser data.
