IT'S OFFICIAL: Delta Air Lines will begin offering two daily flights between Durango and Salt Lake City starting July 1.
The official word came Wednesday during a conference call with airport officials and a Delta official, said Don Brockus, spokesman for the Durango-La Plata County Airport.
Delta had announced back in March that it would begin the daily flights. But it did so believing there was $750,000 federal grant available to help subsidize lost revenue. Currently, it's not certain the grant is available but, either way, Delta plans to offer the flights for as long as they remain profitable.
The two daily flights will be serviced by 50 seat planes bringing the total of daily outbound seats from Durango to 550.
Getting to Durango just got easier. Thanks Delta!
