More Delta flights coming to Brainerd this summer

This summer, Delta Air Lines customers flying from Brainerd will have more weekend flight choices.

These daily flights throughout the weekend at Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport will help thousands of travelers get even more out of their summer travel plans, SkyWest reported.

“When it comes to quality, reliable and convenient air service, having more just makes air travel even easier,” said Mike Thompson, SkyWest Airlines vice president – Market Development, in a news release. “And this enhanced summer schedule certainly gives customers more travel options when flying in and out of Central Minnesota.”

The weekend flight schedule from June 28–Aug. 31 includes :

• Departing Minneapolis at 11:20 a.m. Saturday and Sunday and arriving in Brainerd at 12:09 p.m.

• Departing Brainerd at 12:35 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and arriving in Minneapolis at 1:32 p.m.

• Departing Minneapolis at 2:20 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and arriving in Brainerd at 3:06 p.m.

• Departing Brainerd at 3:32 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and arriving in Minneapolis at 4:26 p.m.

SkyWest noted flight times vary and schedules are subject to change.

In addition to the two daily weekend flights, Brainerd travelers will continue to have two daily flights to Minneapolis during the week onboard the 50-passenger CRJ200 aircraft. From Minneapolis, customers have access to hundreds of daily flights to more than 130 destinations in Delta’s global network.

“We are very pleased to have these additional flight options for the summer months, when the number of passengers using our airport goes up dramatically” said Jeff Wig, airport manager, Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport. “It is great news, and we look forward to continued growth of our Delta Connection flights, operated by SkyWest.”

SkyWest has a fleet of 327 aircraft and more than 10,000 aviation professionals operating more than 1,800 flights each day to 171 destinations throughout North America. The airline is headquartered in St. George, Utah.
