Delta Air Lines’ newest destination: Hilton Head, South Carolina.
The golf and beach resort will become the 330th destination served by Delta and its Delta Connection partners.
Service starts May 23, when Delta begins offering three daily round-trip flights to its hub in Atlanta. The flights will be operated by Delta Connection partner Republic Airlines on 69-seat Embraer E170 jets.
Delta also will offer seasonal, Saturday-only service between Hilton Head and New York LaGuardia. That service will begin June 8 and also will be on Embraer E170s operated by Republic.
The Atlanta-Hilton Head flights are on sale now while the LaGuardia service will go on sale Saturday (Jan. 12).
“The new flights to Atlanta, the industry’s leading airline hub, as well as the New York flight, will connect Hilton Head to the world,” Joe Esposito, Delta’s Senior Vice President – Network Planning, says in a statement.
Hilton Head will become Delta’s fifth destination in South Carolina, joining Charleston, Columbia, Greenville/Spartanburg and Myrtle Beach. Delta also flies to nearby Savannah, Georgia, about 40 miles from Hilton Head.
