Delta opening Atlanta route from ACY

The South Jersey Transportation Authority proudly announces new air service from Atlantic City International Airport to Delta’s largest hub -- in Atlanta, Georgia. This is one of many steps in our commitment to improve air service and amenities to the traveling public in the South Jersey region.

“The future just got brighter for Atlantic City International Airport and the travelers it serves,” said South Jersey Transportation Authority Chairman Frank Spencer. “This new service, connecting Atlantic City to the world’s largest airport, offers greater accessibility for travelers to our exciting regional destinations and excellent connectivity for our outbound market.”

Among the improvements to ACY that the SJTA has made is a full instrument landing system, a new taxiway, improved lighting on the flight ramps, a new 1,000 space parking lot, and this year work began on a new interim baggage screening facility for the Transportation Security Administration. Future development will include a multi-level parking garage with approximately 1,400 spaces to further enhance the ACY travel experience.

“South Jersey residents will be given a new gateway of air service by tapping into Delta’s SkyTeam alliance offering more flights through Northwest and Continental airlines, greatly contributing to the continued growth in passenger traffic as new flights and new destinations are added to our region -– furthering our commitment for continual airside and facility improvements, such as the ACY parking garage, to encourage more air service development,” stated, SJTA Acting Executive Director James R. Iannone.
