FINALLY:
Delta Set to Launch Direct Atlanta-Monrovia Flights Sept 4th

05/25/2010
- Delta Airlines Press Release




DIRECT TO MONROVIA: The new service, which is scheduled to begin Sept. 4, will connect Delta’s hub at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Roberts International Airport in Monrovia with a stop in Accra, Ghana. The flight will be operated on 215-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, equipped with 34BusinessElite seats and 181 seats in Economy.

ATLANTA –

Delta Air Lines Tuesday announced new service between Atlanta and Monrovia, Liberia, expanding the airline’s position as the leading U.S. carrier operating flights to Africa.

The announcement comes on the eve of a Wednesday meeting between President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and U.S. Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security to give update on the progress of clearing Liberia for Delta Airlines Direct service to Monrovia which is set to begin in September.


The new service, which is scheduled to begin Sept. 4, will connect Delta’s hub at
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Roberts International Airport in Monrovia with a stop in Accra, Ghana. The flight will be operated on 215-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, equipped with 34 BusinessElite seats and 181 seats in Economy.



APPROVED: I have been pleased to work with Delta and the Office of Global Strategies at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to ensure that security continues to be a priority on all international aviation
partnerships. As Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, I support TSA's international aviation security programs. Facilitating commerce without compromising security remains a reasonable approach. Today, we are one step closer to offering direct service flights from the United States to Liberia – strengthening our partnership with Africa.”


U.S. Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security

Delta has received approval from the Liberian Civil Aviation
Authority, and preliminary approval from the U.S. government, to sell
seats for the new flight for the planned launch in September. Final
U.S. government approvals are expected before the flight begins.

“As the No. 1 U.S. carrier serving Africa, Delta remains committed to
expanding our presence into fast-growing African markets,” said Perry
Cantarutti, Delta’s senior vice president of Europe, Middle East and
Africa. “Our new service between our Atlanta hub and Monrovia will
provide convenient connections between Liberia and cities across the
United States.”

Delta had previously intended to begin service to Monrovia in June 2009,
but was delayed while Roberts International Airport implemented
measures to ensure its compliance with the standards of the
International Civil Aviation Organization. Delta has worked closely with
the United States and Liberian governments while the airport facilities
in Monrovia were properly equipped and prepared for the new service.

"The government is enthusiastic about the prospect of Delta providing a
direct flight between Monrovia and the United States, which would be the
first such service in many years,” said Liberia President Ellen
Johnson-Sirleaf. “The government is working earnestly to ensure that all
the necessary requirements are met so that the flights will commence as
scheduled."

Added U.S. Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), chairman of the House
Committee on Homeland Security: “I have been pleased to work with Delta
and the Office of Global Strategies at the Transportation Security
Administration (TSA) to ensure that security continues to be a priority
on all international aviation partnerships. As Chairman of the House
Committee on Homeland Security, I support TSA's international aviation
security programs. Facilitating commerce without compromising security
remains a reasonable approach. Today, we are one step closer to
offering direct service flights from the United States to Liberia –
strengthening our partnership with Africa.”

Delta, which has operated in Africa since 2006, has announced its
intention to serve up to 10 African destinations from the United States,
with aircraft ready to begin service pending U.S. and foreign
government approvals.

Delta’s service between Atlanta and Monrovia via Accra will operate once
weekly as follows:

Flight:
134
Departs:
Atlanta at 7 p.m.
Arrives: Monrovia at 2:25 p.m. (next day)
Effective: Sept. 4, 2010
Frequency: Once weekly


Flight: 135
Departs: Monrovia at 5:30 p.m.
Arrives:
Atlanta at 5:30 a.m. (next day)
Effective:
Sept. 5, 2010
Frequency
: Once weekly

Bob Johnson, founder and chairman of The RLJ Companies, which owns
significant development projects in Liberia, said: “A few years ago
while attending the Clinton Global Initiative and after hearing
President Sirleaf appeal to the American private sector for support, I
made a commitment to mobilize $30 million for Liberia. In June 2009, we
opened the RLJ Kendeja Resort & Villas, a 78-room villa style
hotel. I applaud Delta Air Lines for making the commitment to provide
direct air service to Liberia which will provide economic growth
opportunities to Liberia from a variety of business sectors around the
world.”

Delta also is preparing to begin new year-round service between Atlanta
and Accra. This service, announced in 2009, will begin on June 1 with
three weekly flights, expanding to four weekly flights on June 14, and
complement existing five-times weekly service between
New York-JFK and Accra.

On June 2, Delta will also begin nonstop seasonal service between New
York-JFK and Abjua, Nigeria, and in June and July will add two
additional weekly nonstop flights between Atlanta and Johannesburg to
support travel to and from the 2010 World Cup.

This summer, Delta will operate flights to seven African destinations.
In addition to Monrovia, Delta will offer service to Accra, Ghana;
Abuja, Nigeria; Cairo, Egypt; Dakar, Senegal; Johannesburg, South
Africa; and Lagos, Nigeria. Delta also intends to serve Malabo,
Equatorial Guinea; Nairobi, Kenya; and Luanda, Angola once government
approvals are received.

As the first carrier serving Africa nonstop from the United States,
Delta has grown from 22 weekly departures to and from Africa in July
2007 to nearly 80 planned for July 2010, saving customers a significant
amount of time on flights. Customers traveling between Atlanta and
Johannesburg, for example, save an average of six hours each direction
compared with connecting in Europe.

Delta Air Lines serves more than 160 million customers each year. With
its unsurpassed global network, Delta and the Delta Connection carriers
offer service to 367 destinations in 66 countries on six
continents. Delta employs more than 70,000 employees worldwide and
operates a mainline fleet of nearly 800 aircraft. A founding member of
the
SkyTeam global alliance, Delta
participates in the industry’s leading
trans-Atlantic joint venture with
Air France KLM. Including its worldwide alliance partners, Delta offers
customers more than 16,000 daily flights, with hubs in Amsterdam,
Atlanta, Cincinnati, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New
York-JFK, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Salt Lake City and Tokyo-Narita.
Customers can check in for flights, print boarding passes, check bags
and review flight status at
delta.com.
