Delta Abandons Capital

September 4th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Catching a flight to and from the Capital City is going to be more difficult and time consuming after October 1st. Thats when Delta ends non stop flights from Tallahassee to Tampa, Orlando, and Ft. Lauderdale. Governor Charlie Crist says he has been trying to change the airlines mind, but is also exploring other options.

Ive been calling the president of Delta for four days and I was finally able to chat with him yesterday and he was very gracious, Crist said. And I said, you know, we really would like to continue to have this service, to support our state, to support our economy. But you know, I think its good to have a couple plays, so I called Southwest too. And Im exchanging phone calls with the president of Southwest airlines to see if we cant reverse what Delta has decided to do, to maybe move Southwest into our market.

Delta will still service the Capitol, but only through Atlanta.
