“New York continues to be the top destination for our travelers, and we are proud to be able to service this region from two airports: first Newark and now LaGuardia,” said Terry Hart, President of the Chattanooga Airport. “We appreciate Delta Air Line’s continued confidence and support, and this will take us to new heights over and above the 16 percent record-breaking growth we had last year.”

“On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are grateful for Delta’s commitment to Chattanooga,” said the Airport Authority’s chairman, Dan Jacobson. “75 percent of traffic from the Chattanooga Airport is business-related, with travelers needing to fly out and return on the same day. We would like to thank all of the loyal customers who consistently fly out of Chattanooga. We believe the growth we have seen over the last couple of years has definitely translated into new service opportunities and that can only continue as we move forward.”
