Governor and Local Officials Meet with Delta

There's a major difference in the Delta connection in Montgomery.

Thursday Governor Riley and city leaders met with top Delta officials to discuss the progress of the service in Montgomery. Riley scheduled the meeting in January when the airline visited Montgomery to make improvements in its untimely connection flights.

City leaders call the change in service "polarizing. The grade of customer service in the capitol city is setting a new benchmark for the entire region.

The Montgomery Regional Airport is taking the opportunity to create a new ad campaign to attract new businesses and to change over to an all-jet service.

The airport says their new found success with the Delta connection is helping them create new contracts across the region. During the next few weeks the airport authority will host a large group of mayors from cities in the area to show them what the new revitalized airport has to offer.
