Delta Connection

Delta Connection is a flight connection service brand name for the spoke-hub of U.S. mainline carrier Delta Air Lines, under which a number of individually owned regional airlines and one wholly owned regional carrier operate short- and medium-haul routes. Mainline carriers often use regional airlines to operate services in order to increase frequency, serve routes that would not sustain larger aircraft, or for other competitive reasons. Delta Connection is currently the only regional affiliate structure in the United States to utilize an all-jet fleet after retiring its turboprop services.

Famous quotes containing the word connection:

    We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast, but when we say this we imagine that hour as placed in an obscure and distant future. It never occurs to us that it has any connection with the day already begun or that death could arrive this same afternoon, this afternoon which is so certain and which has every hour filled in advance.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)
