Delta also added a fifth trip out of its hub in Atlanta (ATL) on Feb. 19.
For the Rolex 24, Delta is running a full schedule of four flights a day to and from ATL from Jan. 23 through 26 and Jan. 28 through 30. This is up from three flights daily in January, when the airline has a systemwide reduction in ATL frequency.
While Delta has provided special event flights from Detroit in years past, this is the first time it has added flights from New York City.
