LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) —
The Lincoln Airport Authorities has been awarded a $750,000 grant that
could help the airport land service to Atlanta.
The authority says
the money would be used to guarantee revenue for possible Delta
flights. The money would provide some financial protection for Delta if
first-year revenue from the Lincoln-Atlanta flights falls short of
Airport Authority Executive Director John Wood says
the grant will help Lincoln as it continues negotiating with Delta on
flight details. Wood says that if the talks are successful, Delta
probably would begin the flights in June next year as the airline
launches its summer schedule.
