(Rochester, MN) -- Good news from the Rochester International Airport today. The airport sent word that Delta Airlines would be adding a second daily flight to Atlanta, beginning this July.


That will mean two flights to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport along with three daily flights to the Twin Cities.

Delta Airlines began its daily Atlanta flight nearly three years ago. According to a news release, this will allow passengers access to more than two-dozen cities in the southeast U.S. The additional flights will begin July 9th.

This news comes hot on the heels of United Airlines announcing last month that it will be adding three daily flights to and from Chicago starting in June. That addition was expected to increase passenger loads at RST by approximately 150 passengers a day.
