MIAMI — Delta Air Lines is continuing to grow in Cleveland. In June, the Atlanta based mega carrier will launch flights from Cleveland to Hartford, Indianapolis, and Raleigh/Durham. Additionally, the airline will be making some operational changes.

The changes are thought to be in response to United Airlines’ decision to de-hub the airport last year. In particular, Delta announced plans to enter Cleveland to Hartford, Indianapolis, and Raleigh-Durham. All three were cities that faced the ax with United.

Hartford


Delta will begin operating Cleveland to Hartford on June 5th. It will operate one flight per day between these cities, and a CRJ-700 outfitted with 9 seats in first class, 8 Economy Comfort seats, and 48 seats in economy will be utilized to operate this route. These flights will be operated by ExpressJet.

The flight will depart Hartford at 7:00AM lt, and it will arrive in Cleveland at 8:50AM lt. The return flight will depart Cleavland at 6:50PM lt, and it will arrive in Hartford at 8:45PM lt.

Currently, United Airlines operates four ERJ-145 flights a day between Cleveland and Hartford. United will discontinue this route on March 31.

Starting June 5, Delta will enter this market. It will operate one flight per day between these cities, and a CRJ-200 with 50 seats in economy will be utilized to operate this route. These flights will be operated by Endeavor Air.

The flight will depart Indianapolis at 7:00AM lt, and it will arrive in Cleveland at 8:10AM lt. The return flight will depart Cleavland at 8:35AM lt, and it will arrive in Indianapolis at 9:45AM lt.

Raleigh/Durham


It will operate one flight per day between these cities, and a CRJ-700 outfitted with 9 seats in first class, 8 Economy Comfort seats, and 48 seats in economy will be utilized to operate this route. These flights will be operated by ExpressJet.

Although Delta already operates flights between these cities, the company operates a mix of MD-80/90s, Airbus aircraft, the 717, and CRJ-900 aircraft. Starting June 5, all of Delta’s flights between Cleveland and Atlanta will be operated by mainline aircraft.
