Delta expanding CHO-Detroit service
Officials at the Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport announced Wednesday, March 18 that Delta Airlines has expanded its service from CHO to their Detroit hub from a 34 seat plane to a Canadair Regional Jet that seats 50. "When you consider that's 16 extra seats, on two daily flights, for 365 days a year, it's a big expansion in our business," says airport executive director Barbara Hutchinson. "It's also going to be cheaper for travelers because airlines determine their pricing based on the number of seats on the plane." That's not to mention that travelers hoping to catch domestic or international flights in Detroit will be able to get their faster aboard the new jets. What was once a two hour flight is now only an hour and a half.
