Delta Air Lines to end passenger service at Toledo Express Airport


Delta Air Lines announced Tuesday morning that it will discontinue all passenger service to and from Toledo Express Airport on September 1.

This elimination of Delta's remaining three daily flights to Cincinnati follows the airline's decision earlier this year to stop its Toledo service to Atlanta.

There are now just three passengers carriers remaining at Toledo: Northwest Airlines operates five daily flights to Detroit, American Airlines has three daily flights to Chicago, and Allegiant Air operates services to Sanford, Fla., and St. Petersburg, Fla., several days a week.

"To say that this is disappointing is an understatement," said Eric Frankl, airport director for the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority.

Delta told Toledo officials it was pulling out due to high fuel prices, which have rendered its Toledo commuter jet service unprofitable, Mr. Frankl said.
