Delta Air Lines is expanding its service in Boston, which is good news for any South Carolina travelers looking to visit Beantown.
That’s because part of the extended service will include a daily flight to Charleston from Boston, according to multiple reports.
Beginning on June 8, Delta will offer one daily round-trip from Boston’s Logan Airport to Charleston International Airport, according to bizjournals.com. The flight will be on a CRJ-900 aircraft, with seating for 76 people.
Prior to this, JetBlue Airways was the lone airline with a nonstop flight between the Charleston and Boston.
“I think it’s a terrific recognition of the demand between the two cities,” said Paul Campbell, CEO of Charleston County Aviation Authority said to postandcourier.com, adding the competition with JetBlue could result in lower fares. “By committing to the flight, Delta knows it will have to compete with JetBlue.”
The flight will include seats for 12 passengers in first class, 20 in Delta Comfort and 44 more ticket holders in the main cabin.
