Local airports announce new flights


Starting this summer, Delta will begin offering nonstop flights from Hilton Head Island Airport to Atlanta and New York City. There will be three daily nonstop flights to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and Saturday flights to LaGuardia Airport. Hilton Head Island Airport’s runway expansion project has allowed larger jets to land, which means more flight options and competitive pricing. The airport also is considering revamping its terminal and parking lot to accommodate an expected increase in passengers.

At Savannah-Hilton Head Island International Airport, Allegiant airlines is adding four seasonal nonstop routes to Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Niagara Falls, New York, both beginning June 7; and to Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire, both beginning June 8. The routes will operate twice a week, according to a news release.
