Delta to Increase Flights from Shreveport Regional Airport

sptregionalaptIn July, Delta Air Lines will begin offering 10 flights a day to two of their hubs, Memphis and Atlanta. This is the first time since 2004 that Delta has offered that many daily flights from Shreveport. Seven of the flights will serve the Atlanta hub and three of the flights will serve the Memphis hub. Shreveport Regional Airport is the only airport in the region to have direct flights to Memphis International Airport. Delta typically only offers eight flights a day to their two hubs from Shreveport.

“From their first flight in Shreveport in 1929, Delta Air Lines has served the Ark-La-Tex for the last 82 years and the addition of these daily flights shows that they are still committed to keeping the citizens of Shreveport-Bossier City and beyond connected to the world,” said Mayor Cedric Glover.

The first four months of this year has been good for Shreveport Regional Airport. April marked the twenty-second consecutive month of increased enplanements, or the number of people flying out of Shreveport Regional Airport. The total number of passengers using the airport is up 13% with 175,504 passengers in 2012 compared to 155,902 during the same time in 2011.

“We are thrilled at the news of these additional flights. Summer is a busy travel season and we’re happy to see that Delta is going to be able to accommodate the extra traffic this summer,” says Bishop L. Lawrence Brandon, Chairman of the Shreveport Airport Authority.

“With our additional service at Shreveport Regional Airport, Delta is able to offer our Shreveport customers even greater access to our global network, which includes service to nearly 350 destinations in more than 60 countries,” said
Mike Anastas, Regional Director, Delta Corporate Real Estate.
