Lincoln to Atlanta just got easier

Delta Air Lines restored daily air service between Lincoln and Atlanta based on demand and an incentive from the Lincoln business community. It will be a crucial link for both business and leisure travelers to get to Atlanta, or connect with other flights in the southeastern United States.

The airline received a $750,000 revenue guarantee from the federal government for one year, and $52,000 from business owners in Lincoln. The first flight on Sept. 3 was completely booked. The last time Delta offered the service between Lincoln and Atlanta was in 2009.

The flights will be on a CRJ-900 regional jet. It departs Lincoln daily at 7 a.m. and then returns from Atlanta at 7 p.m.
