Delta suspending service to Detroit from Central Illinois Regional Airport
BLOOMINGTON (25 NEWS) - The airline industry is still being impacted by the worker shortage and that is causing some services to get suspended here locally.
Delta announced its suspending service to Detroit from Central Illinois Regional Airport in Bloomington. CIRA deputy director Fran Strebing spoke with news partner WJBC’s Scott Miller.
“We worked in conjunction with Delta to make sure the major clients, and in this case it was Rivian, were aware of this. Delta sales staff reached out to Rivian and we did as well and we are working through solutions,” said Strebing. “We have other ways to get here and it may be a one-stop through Chicago on American. We are going to try and keep working through it and keep working with Delta to see where they might have an opportunity to change this earlier rather than later.”
Strebing says the service is being suspended for the first quarter of next year and Delta hopes to bring it back by April.
