October 22, 2012         


Dayton International Airport is pleased to announce that Delta Air Lines will begin daily non-stop service between Dayton International Airport (DAY) and LaGuardia Airport (LGA).  Weekday non-stop flights will begin January 3, 2013.  Weekend service includes one Saturday morning origination at 7:00 A.M. and one Sunday evening origination at 6:50 P.M. 


“This is great news for the business community in the Dayton Region.  A lot of hard work went into making

this flight possible again.  It’s good when the region comes together to work on a common issue,” noted

Jeffrey Hoagland, President and CEO of the Dayton Development Coalition.


“These new flights to LaGuardia are very important to our region’s business community, and we appreciate Delta’s responsiveness to our community’s travel needs to Manhattan and other important Delta connections out of New York City,” stated Phil Parker, President  & CEO of the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce.


“For the past six months more than 100 passengers a day have been impacted by the lack of convenient

and reliable service to LGA. I am certain that I can speak for these passengers in thanking Delta for

recognizing and resolving this issue.  Additionally, we extend our gratitude to Senator Sherrod Brown, Congressman Turner and our regional partners for their continual support as we worked together to share our message with Delta Air Lines,” said Terrence G. Slaybaugh, Director of Aviation for the City of Dayton.
