Delta Air Lines is adding a second non-stop flight from The Eastern Iowa Airport (CID) to Atlanta (ATL) starting March 2. The new flight departure time out of CID is 10:30 a.m., arriving in ATL at 1:25 p.m. All flight times are local.

Delta first started the Atlanta service out of The Eastern Iowa Airport (CID) in June 2006. When Delta merged with Northwest Airlines, the carrier made various changes throughout its system and CID’s Atlanta service ended in August 2009.

In August 2010, Delta brought back the ATL service with one daily flight on a 50-seat Canadair Regional Jet. The flight has been doing well, with an average load factor of 88%, according to airport representatives.

Delta has taken notice and included the second ATL flight into the March schedule. This gives CID two optimal departure times and provides regional travelers hundreds of domestic and international connections out of ATL. The new flight schedule will be as follows (all times are local):

CID 6:40 a.m. ATL 9:30 a.m.

CID 10:30 a.m. ATL 1:25 p.m.

ATL 9:05 a.m. CID 9:55 a.m.

ATL 7:20 p.m. CID 8:10 p.m.
