Big Sky Airlines is to operate three
new routes for Delta Air Lines under the initial allocation of the regional
carrier’s recently signed feeder contract.
The Raytheon Beech 1900D operator from
April 8 will start a thrice-weekly roundtrip service from Boston through Watertown, Massachusetts and on to Massena and
Ogdensburg, both in New York.
On the same day, Big Sky will also
begin a twice-weekly flight between New
York’s capital city Albany and Boston as well as a weekly from Albany
on a Watertown-Massena-Ogdensburg-Albany route.
“Our expansion in Boston and continued growth in New York
- both through our JFK hub and in upstate cities - offers customers a
convenient way to conduct business throughout the Northeast,” says Delta VP of
network planning Bob Cortelyou.
“As Boston’s leading carrier in terms of flights
and destinations, customers in upstate New York
also have new connecting opportunities aboard more than 110 flights to 33
nonstop destinations offered by Delta and its partners.”
No airline offers the services being
launched by Big Sky, which will operate as Delta Connection.
