Delta Air Lines has announced the addition of a fourth round-trip flight between Atlanta and the Golden Triangle Regional Airport (GTR) in Mississippi starting in June. 

The airport recently announced a record number of passengers in 2018. GTR Airport Executive Director Mike Hainsey explained that the additional flight with Delta Air Lines is part of a long term plan for growth to meet the community’s needs. 

“We appreciate the efforts by Delta to help our growth and support the people in the Golden Triangle,” Hainsey said. “As the industry continues to grow and bring people to our area, we will strive to provide them the service they deserve.”

The additional flight will be in the early afternoon, giving GTR passengers choices for their travel throughout the day. Airline consultant Mike Boyd of Boyd Group International commented on the new service. 

“The opportunities at GTR are unlimited,” said Boyd. “This is just the beginning as the airlines recognize the growth potential for service at GTR.”

Departures from GTR on Delta Air Lines to Atlanta offer connections worldwide. For further information contact Executive Director Mike Hainsey at 662.327.4422 x201 or [email protected]. To make a reservation for a flight in June or after, log on to
