Delta will continue to serve Brainerd until a replacement is ready

The Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport Commission issued a statement Thursday designed to reassure the traveling public that Delta Airlines will continue to serve the Brainerd airport until Great Lakes Airlines is set up to offer a seamless transition to the traveling public.

Acting Airport Manager Rick Adair, in a statement, said all that is known for sure at this time is that the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded the Essential Air Service subsidy to Great Lakes.

When Great Lakes will actually take over is not known, but the DOT has assured the commission that the transition will be seamless and tickets already purchased with Delta will be honored. When making reservations with Delta, travelers are advised to be sure to give the airline contact information such as an email address or telephone number. And those travelers who currently have a reservation with Delta, may check with the airline to make sure officials have their contact information.
