Delta Expands Service at Norfolk, Va., by 20 Percent With New Non-stop Flights to Boston, Orlando

Low introductory fares invite customers to fly new routes

NORFOLK, Va., May 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Delta Air Lines’ (NYSE:DAL) customers in the Norfolk/Hampton Roads region of Virginia soon will be able to enjoy the only non-stop service to Boston — with twice-daily flights — as well as new non-stop service to Orlando and an additional non- stop flight to Atlanta.

Beginning July 1, Delta is increasing its schedule of flights from the busy East Coast port city and offering more non-stop service to top business and leisure destinations in New England and the South. All flights will be operated by Delta Connection carrier Comair using popular 50-seat Bombardier regional jet aircraft.

Business customers will appreciate the convenient schedules and the special introductory fares Delta is offering to celebrate the new service. Fares on these non-stop flights between Norfolk and Boston and between Norfolk and Orlando are as low as $69* each way (based on roundtrip purchase). Additional taxes/fees/restrictions apply. Fares are available only for purchase on delta.com or from a travel agent. Tickets must be purchased on or before June 3, 2005. See below for further details.

“These new flights represent more than a 20 percent increase in our service from the Norfolk-Hampton Roads area and a significant investment by Delta in the Tidewater region,” said Doug Blissit, vice president-Network Planning.

With the summer schedule, Delta and Delta Connection carrier Comair will offer Norfolk-Hampton Roads customers 23 daily flights to six non-stop destinations – 11 to Delta’s largest hub in Atlanta, two to Boston, five to Cincinnati, two to Ft. Lauderdale, two to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, and one to Orlando.
