Here’s something I missed (but the attentive members of the Bradley Airport Yahoo! group didn’t) during the hubbub over plane inspections: Delta is dropping direct flights between Bradley and Columbus, Ohio.
Delta has been offering 10 flights a week to Columbus – twice a day on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursday and Fridays; and once a day on Sundays and Wednesdays. The two-hour flights, operated by Delta Connection partner Chautauqua Airlines, are on 50-seat Embraer 145 regional jets.
Delta’s schedule shows the flights disappearing early in June.
The loss of those flights and the 500 seats a week out of Bradley come as no surprise. Airlines are cutting back hard on sevice, and cutting back hardest at smaller airports like Bradley. But it’s a shame.
The Columbus Dispatch has more details.
