Worcester Regional Airport, in Massachusetts, is gaining a new nonstop service through Delta Air Lines to Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW). Flights will be operated by Delta Connection carrier, SkyWest Airlines.
Thomas P. Glynn, CEO of the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport), which owns and operates Worcester Regional Airport said of the announcement: “We are excited about Delta’s new service between Worcester and Detroit and the breadth of increased travel options that will be available for both business and leisure passengers.”
He continued: “The investments we have made in Worcester Regional Airport and the incredible support from Worcester and the surrounding communities have helped bring this launch to fruition.”
Detroit is a primary connecting hub for Delta Air Lines, allowing passengers from Worcester to connect to destinations throughout the US, Canada, Mexico and Asia.
“Massport’s investment in Worcester Airport has expanded economic vitality throughout Central Massachusetts,” said Congressman Jim McGovern. “Each new route – including this nonstop flight to Detroit brings new opportunity and business to our community. Worcester Airport has already helped bring $350 million into our local economy, and I know that through the ongoing work of Massport, that number will only continue to grow.”
Delta Air Lines is the third major airline to announce services at Worcester Regional Airport in the last 18 months alongside JetBlue’s service to New York and American Airlines’ service to Philadelphia.
